A crispy airy centre, wrapped in smooth, delicious chocolate – there’s a reason why we’re fans of Maltesers. But we’ve found an even better way to enjoy them with this heavenly Maltesers and banana muffins recipe. The soft and sweet banana flavoured sponge is given an added crunchy texture when the crushed chocolate Maltesers are added to the mix.
