It's random recipe time again! This brilliant challenge hosted by Dom from Belleau Kitchen is in its third year so he decided that the theme would be "the choice is yours" - pick a book your way and make a random recipe from it. My choice this month was simple - randomly unpack one of my boxes labelled 'books' and pull out a book.
I opened it to a random page and the choice was nutty banana and choc chip chomps or spotty dotty orange and poppy seed. I had all the ingredients for the banana one to hand so that was an easy choice.
The muffins were quick and easy to make - just mix all the ingredients together and bake. They were really moist and I loved the added crunch of the nuts and sweetness of the white chocolate. The sugar amount was just right for me - often I find recipes too sweet. If you like a sweet muffin then add a little more sugar.
These muffins would also fit in nicely with this month's One Ingredient challenge hosted by Nazima from Franglais Kitchen and Laura from How to Cook Good Food. The ingredient this month is banana. If you are a regular reader, you will know I love baking with bananas so I'm doubly excited that I get to join in and also to read the round up as I can get more banana inspiration!
