Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Bananas are a staple at my house. I buy them a couple times a week and they’re usually gobbled up within days.  But every once in a while one gets over ripe and nobody wants it so I’ll throw it in the freezer for a recipe like this.  Waste not want not, amIright?

These muffins are delicious, easy, and (from my personal experience) they make getting up painfully early just a little less agonizing.  The recipe makes 12 perfect muffins that are good to eat immediately or freeze.  The blog where I got the recipe says that they’re 100% foolproof.  After trying them, I suspect this is true.  They’re the perfect “I-don’t-really-bake-but-I-want-my-house-guests-to-think-I-do” recipe.  So go ahead and bookmark it now.

To make them, you’ll need:

  • 3-4 large bananas (ripe and mashed)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350° F.

Mix the banana, sugar, egg and butter.  If your bananas were frozen, they’ll be a bit watery.  Don’t worry about it- the muffins will turn out fine.

In a separate bowl, mix together the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour.  Combine the wet and dry ingredients, then stir in the chocolate chips.

Grease a cupcake/muffin pan, or fill it with fun colorful liners.  Then drop equal amounts of the batter into each little section and bake for 20 minutes. Let them cool, then enjoy with butter or peanut butter… and, of course, a big cup of coffee!
