  2. Mix flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix yoghurt, oil, brown sugar and vanilla sugar. Stir in the egg and mashed bananas and add to the dry ingredients taking care not to over-mix. Finally, stir in chocolate chips and fill prepared muffin tins 2/3 full with cake mixture.
