organic chocolate muffin recipe kids


150g (5oz) organic plain flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp natural salt

1 large organic egg

40g (1 1/2oz) Fairtrade caster sugar

125ml (4fl oz) organic milk

50g (2oz) unsalted organic butter, melted

100g organic chocolate (white, milk or dark - whichever is your little ones favourite) bashed and smashed up in a sandwich bag (i.e. The Fun Bit). Green and Blacks have a range of cooking chocolate that we're addicted to.

Making the muffins:

Preheat your oven to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6

Take a big bowl and using a whisk or the classic wooden spoon, mix together the egg, sugar, milk and melted butter.

Then sift the flour, salt and baking powder into the bowl and mix it all together.

Add the small pieces of broken up chocolate and give it a good stir. It's probably best to give the spoon a little lick at this point and make sure it tastes yummy.

Spoon the mixture into muffin cases so that they are 2/3 full and bake for 20 minutes. They should be springy to the touch. 

Leave them in the muffin tray for 10 minutes to cool. Then gobble them all up with a glass of milk.
