Yesterday, I decided to make some banana chocolate chip muffins! Bananas were on sale this week, so my mom thought it would be a good idea to buy three bundles cause why not, right? Well we still had some bananas leftover from the last grocery visit so we pretty much had a whole kitchen of bananas. The great thing with bananas, other than the nutrients they hold, is that they're "in season" year round! These muffins are easy to make and quite delicious! ;)

Yields: 12 muffins

Muffins

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips 
  • 3 ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 2 large eggs

Topping (optional)

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
 
 

Procedure:
Preheat your oven to 350° F. Place all your dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips) in one large bowl and stir to combine. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients (lightly beaten eggs, mashed bananas, melted butter, and vanilla extract).Slowly fold your wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined. Scoop the batter onto lined muffin tins and bake for about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes before you dig in!

 

Topping (optional):
Brush the melted butter on top of the muffins then dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture!

Tips:
- Let the butter cool before mixing it with the eggs
- You can add nuts or substitute for the chocolate chips 
- Don't over mix your batter - it will lead to a rubbery bread
