Milo Banana Chia Seeds Muffins


My son going on his first date!  And he wanted banana cake for his first date.  
So I decided to make this Milo Banana Chia Seed Muffin to surprise his date.
I fell in love with Milo when Zoe [Bake for Happy Kids] hosted Little Thumb Up on the theme Milo, 
and I did Milo Chocolate Chips Cookies.  It was my first time using Milo to bake and I didn’t know it was so good.
My last bake was Milo Muffins and it was so well liked by my family. 
The idea of adding banana to Milo Muffins was then proposed by my sons.   
Do you know that Sharon [Delishar] is a self-proclaimed Milo Addicts?  
So I tell you, her Milo recipe will never go wrong.  I have tested.  It is totally delish! 

2                Bananas
1 tsp          Vanilla extract
2 tsp         Baking powder
100g         Sugar [I used raw sugar]
2                Eggs
150ml       Milk
2 tbsp       Chia seeds
60g           Milo
200g         Cake flour
100g         Unsalted butter, softened
                  Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Mash banana.

Add chia seeds to milk.
Cream butter, and sugar.  Add vanilla extract and eggs.

In a large mixing bowl, sieve together the milo, cake flour, baking powder, and salt.  
Add ½ of the flour mixture into the butter mixture and mix well.

Add ½ of the milk mixture and mix well.  
The continue with the other ½ of the flour mixture and milk mixture.

Lastly add in the mashed bananas.

Scoop batter into the muffin liners.
Bake for about 25 mins at 180°C or until skewer comes out clean.

Let cool on wire rack before serving.
