  • 2 teaspoon instant coffee powder or espresso powder
  • ½ cup (135 grams) ripe mash banana
  • ½ cup (90 grams) brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) oil
  • ½ cup (120 ml) whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon Ossoro french vanilla essence (vanilla essence)
  • ½ cup (85 grams) chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven @180° C for 10 minutes. Line the muffin tray with liners. If you dont have liners just grease the tray with butter or oil. 
  • In a mixing bowl place the sift and add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, coffee powder and salt. Sieve them together.
  • To the dry ingredients mixture add in the brown sugar, vanilla essence, oil, milk, mash banana and vinegar.
  • Fold the mixture together and make a batter. 
  • Take the chocolate chips and coat it in little flour. This will prevent the chocolate chips from sinking at the bottom.
  • Add in the chocolate chips into the batter and give a quick gentle mix. Do not over mix them.
  • Scoop the batter into the lined muffin tray till ¾th of the cavity. 
  • Tap the muffin tray for 2-3 times to level it and release any air bubbles inside. 
  • Sprinkle some chocolate chips over the muffins. 
  • Bake at a preheated oven @180° C for 20 minutes. A toothpick or skewer inserted should come out clean. (I bake with both the filaments on). 
  • Baking time will differ depending upon your oven temperature settings because each oven reacts differently. 
  • Remove from the oven and transfer onto a cooling rack and allow to cool down completely before serving.



  • Use all purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour or use 50:50 ratio of all purpose flour and whole wheat flour. 
  • Brown sugar can be substituted with granulated sugar or jaggery or cane sugar. 
  • You can use butter instead of oil.
  • If you can get your hands on espresso powder, you can substitute it with instant coffee powder.

  • You can use 1 egg and opt out the vinegar.
