Anything chocolate immediately grabs my attention, but if there’s a little something extra that will surprise you when you bit into it, now you have me sold!

If you ask my husband, he’ll tell you I don’t like surprises, but I make an exception in this instance. Whether it’s biting into a nut or a caramel filling, the added texture and sensory delight makes eating so much more enjoyable!

 

 

You may recognise the base of this recipe from another Banana, Apple & Cinnamon Muffin I shared back in March. The core ingredients and ratios of this muffin has no become a staple in my home and I will often mix it up adding sultanas, or blueberries, but one afternoon I added some cacao powder, a dollop of jam and these moreish muffins came to life!

 

 

Any jam will do for this, but I love making either a homemade raspberry chia jam or using a lower sugar berry jam. The added chocolate chips on top were a bit of an afterthought, but really added a bit of extra sweetness. You can also mix some through the batter so you’ve got little pops of chocolate throughout the muffin. You’d have to try hard to place your chocolate chips strategically if you want to create a drooling face like I did by accident here! I know you can see it and it’s not just me!!
