Recipes: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I am a faithful follower of the Cozy.Cottage.Cute. blog.  Earlier this year, Sarah posted a recipe for banana chocolate chip muffins.  I had posted it on my earlier blog, but these are good enough that I think they are worth posting as the first baked goods recipe on my new blog. 


Source:  Cozy.Cottage.Cute.

Ingredients
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. chocolate chips
2 c. mashed very ripe bananas (about 4 large)
1/2 c. (1 stick/4oz.) butter or stick margarine, melted
1/4 c. milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions
Preheat your oven to 375°F.  Grease 12 large muffin cups (or about 18 regular muffin cups) or just spray your muffin pan with some cooking oil. 

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Stir in the chocolate chips. 

In a small bowl, blend the bananas, melted margarine, milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until only just blended (do not overmix).  Fill the muffin cups or the muffin pan. 

Bake for 18 to 22 minutes (slightly less if you are making regular sized muffins) or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean.  Let the muffins stand several minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool. 

Tips
  • I prefer using chocolate chunks in these rather than chocolate chips.  The muffins are so much more chocolate-y! 
  • Make sure your bananas are VERY ripe.  Otherwise, they are going to be a little more difficult to mash. 
  • Add a little more vanilla extract if you are feeling like experimenting.
