Waste not want not.

Here's what you should do when you find at least 3 overripe bananas on your kitchen counter:

Pre-heat the oven to 200C.
Line a muffin tin with paper cups.
Mash the bananas.
Add 125ml vegetable oil, followed by 2 eggs and 100g soft light brown sugar (I used caster sugar).
Mix 225grm plain flour, 1tsp bicarbonate of soda and 3 tbsp cocoa powder (sifted) with the oil and banana mixture, beating gently.
Finally spoon into prepared cups.

* Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes, by which time the muffins should be dark, rounded and peaking proudly out of the cups. Allow to cool slightly in their tin before removing to a wire rack.

** Recipe - Nigella's Kitchen

*** I also added a dash of vanilla essence and a handful of chocolate buttons.

Oh by the way - this is what you will get in the end ---> Chocolate Banana Muffins.

[notice that I didn't mention cake mixer? didn't need it! Uhuh, no excuse for not trying this.]
