Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

I'm always on the lookout for great recipes that use the forgotten bananas. I'm a huge fan of this recipe.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
What you need:
1/2 c Softened Butter
3/4 c Brown Sugar
3-4 Overripe Bananas
1 t Vanilla
2 Eggs
2 1/4 c Flour
1 t Baking Soda
1 t Cinnamon
1/4 t Salt
3/4 c Chocolate Chips (I like Milk Chocolate)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use nonstick cooking spray to coat muffin pan well.
  • In a large bowl or mixer cream the butter and brown sugar together.
  • Beat in the eggs, vanilla and bananas until well combined.
  • Add all the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips, to the banana mixture. Mix well.
  • Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Divide the batter evenly into each muffin tin.
  • If you have extra chocolate chips place some on top of the batter.
  • Bake 18-22 minutes. (I used large muffin pans and mine took the full 22 minutes) You know they are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Did you know you can stick too ripe bananas in the freezer? Then you can use them in one of these recipes later, or you can stick frozen bananas in smoothies.
