Chocolate Heart Muffins Recipe

Chocolate Heart Muffins Recipe

A couple of weeks ago I bought a heart baking muffin tray as I thought that will be really good for Valentine’s Day baking. But my eldest insisted that I should bake some muffins this week and as I am a good mother I gave in and made this muffins which are a bit of an adaptation from Nigella’s chocolate banana muffins.


  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 200g unsalted butter – melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 225g plain flour
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 50g of powder sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

What else you will need:

  • heart shape muffin baking tray
  • big bowl
  • potato masher or a mixer
  • a wooden spoon


Preheat you oven at 180C.

Peal and put the banana in the big bowl. Mash using the potato masher – which is really great for this job or just using a mixer.

Next one by one add the melted butter , eggs and sugar. Mix using the wooden spoon now.

Start adding the flour mixed with the cocoa powder and bicarb. I like adding the flour bit by bit and mix well before adding another spoon. When all the dry ingredients are mixed in prepare the muffin case. Now my muffin tray has teflon and it’s not sticky but if yours is make sure to wipe the interior with some of the melted butter.

Spoon the batter into the heart muffin shapes and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. When they are ready allow them to cool before taking them out of the tin.

When cool put them on a wire rack and sprinkle with some powdered sugar mixed with cinnamon. This will give them a great taste that your kids will adore.

    I really must stop coming over here when feeling a bit peckish.
    These muffins look super – quite flat but, I Imagine, with the banana, very moist.

      I love banana in cakes as it makes them sweet and i don’t have to add lots of sugar.
