Pretty Perfect Banana Praline Muffins

Right Folks,

In this post I will explain how to put together a rock solid banana muffin recipe that is both quick and delicious. This is probably the absolute opposite of the healthy banana muffin recipe that I have posted earlier on the site. But that is totally fine, since there is room in life for both. Muffins, like most American baked goods, are people (read kid) pleasers and pretty easy to make. If you skip the praline decoration at the end, they turn into more of a breakfast thing. As is, they are a bit more of an indulgence. Not that there is anything wrong with it!

I am using this Valrhona praline made with 50% almond and 50% hazlenut but you can use any praline, or make it yourself.

Mash

the bananas, in a large bowl.

Scoop

150g of praline.

Add

to the mix, but don't fully incorporate it. So there is swirls of muffin mix and swirls of praline.

Place

the mix into the molds.

Bake for 22 minutes, then take out of the oven and leave to cool for another 22 minutes.

Pull

out of mould and decorate with more praline. Here, I am also using freeze dried banana and toffee bits.
