  • 1 ripe and mashed banana
  • 1 egg
  • 28 g oil 1 tbsp
  • 28 g golden syrup 1 heaped tbsp
  • 20 ml whole milk 1 tbsp + 1 tsp
  • 80 g all-purpose flour 1/3 cup
  • 20 g good quality cocoa powder 1/4 cup
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat your oven at 400°F (200°C) first, and prepare 4 muffins liners in a muffin pan.

  2. With a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon in a medium bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Set aside.

  3. In another bowl, mash the ripe banana with a fork. Whisk in the egg, oil, golden syrup and whole milk.

  4. Fold the dry ingredients in the wet ingredients, and mix everything together with your rubber spatula or wooden spoon. DO NOT OVERMIX the batter. 10 to 15 seconds are enough to combine the two preparations.

  5. With an ice-cream scoop, fill the liners with the batter.

  6. Bake for 5 minutes.

  7. Lower your oven temperature to 350°F (180°C) and bake for a further 15 minutes.

  8. When the muffins are done, turn off the oven and let sit for 1 minute. Take the muffins off of the oven and let cool before enjoying.
