It’s Sunday which means getting ready for the busy, early part of the week whilst still enjoying what remains of the weekend. This week our Sunday fun involves swimming and ‘play cooking’ (girls mixing up any ingredients they fancy), and the getting ready part will include uniform sorting, homework, hair washing, paying bills and cooking! Hence, there just isn’t much time to bake lots of goodies, so I opted for these fail-safe yummy muffins, easily made in just over half an hour for the girls to have after school.
I like to think of this as my go-to winning muffin recipe… This time flavoured with cocoa and bursting with rich (and if served warm, oozing) chocolate chips. These keep and travel really well, so are perfect to make at the weekend for the children to eat after school or to tuck into their lunch boxes as a fairly healthy snack 🙂
