So when our bananas look like this:
I make muffins so delicious I'm willing to risk death (just kidding- hives)..
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash bananas and beat eggs in two separate bowls.
Step 2: In a medium mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Then add oil, beaten eggs, and mashed bananas. Mix just until blended.
Step 3: Gently fold in the mini chocolate chips. Do not overmix!
Step 4: Using a 1/2 cup measuring scoop, pour batter into a muffin tin that had been lined with cups and sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes.
Step 5: Enjoy!
You may have noticed that this recipe makes 14 muffins. I use one full (dozen) tin and a half tin. Because the muffins in the half tin cook just a tad quicker, I ususally remove them from the oven after about 26 minutes. If you would prefer a plain banana muffin, the mini chocolate chips may be omitted. In fact, because Dominic does not like chocolate (I know.. odd) I actually pour two muffins before adding the chips to my batter. You can see from the picture in Step 4 that the two muffins in the half tin are chip-less.
These muffins are so good and super easy to make. They have so much real flavor and can be made from scratch at home without the preservatives or artificial flavors found in boxed mixes.
