Bite size Banana Muffins

Today I am very happy. Well, everyday is a happy day but today is even more special because I won the Fortune Cooking Contest.

This is so unexpected because there were so many amazing entries to the contest. I am thankful to the the hosts Shriya and Nithu for conducting this event and giving us all a chance to share our culinary adventures. The winners were chosen purely by random through randomizer.org. Celebrating any joyful event needs something sweet. So I made mini bite size banana muffins. It’s quick, soft, delicious and I had some friend’s kids at home and they just loved to pop them in their mouth because the muffins where so small.

Recipe: (Makes about 15)

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/6 cup (35 g) sugar
3/8 cup water + another 1/2 cup water
1/8 cup ghee, butter or oil
1/2 cup pureed ripe bananas
Handful of kishmish


Muffin batter ready to be baked

Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Butter or use non-stick cooking spray onto the muffin tin. Mix dry ingredients together. Mix water, ghee and pour over dry ingredients. Beat until mixture is mixed, about 15 – 20 strokes. Pour into muffin tins until half way only, because once baked, the muffins rise. Reduce the heat to 375F and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. The aroma just fills the air.

Serve it with a cup of hot tea or eat as is. It’s bite size and fills your mouth with flavors and the juice from the kishmish makes it even more interesting every now & then.

TIP: You can add kishmish or any other dry fruits into the batter. I used kishmish and it turned out great.

NOTE: I used mini muffin cups hence the name of the recipe. If you use the normal size muffin cups, it will not yield 15 muffins. So you will have to double the measurements of the ingredients.
