I am not sure I love bananas. I mean, I would eat one but they are definitely not the first thing I would grab. Lyncoln on the other hand, is obsessed with bananas! She loves them so much, she likes to open a bunch (literally) all at once and take bites out of each.
But one day, I snagged the open bananas before she could sink her tiny teeth into them. I googled Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin recipes, mixed a couple together and created this master piece. Now... like I said a banana might not be the first thing I grab, but these I would - by the handful!
They are so moist (ewe, I know) and delicious that you will literally be in disbelief that you made them.
Gather up and mix the wet ingredients
3 mashed up bananas (this Mix 'N Masher from pampered chef is a must - think guac too!)
3/4 cup white sugar
A large Splash of Vanilla - large splash people, be generous
1/4 cup Canola Oil*
1/4 cup Olive Oil*
*You can use all canola or whatever cooking oil you have, but I didn't dare deviate the second time around making them. There is something about the combo of canola and olive oil that is magical.
Pile up your Dry Ingredients in a small bowl
1 1/2 cup Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
Once your wet ingredients have been mixed together add the flour in and mix just until combined. If you're in the market for new spatulas, I highly suggest this 5 piece set for $11.99 from Amazon (top gift from Josh and the girls this past Christmas)
Finally, mix in 1 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. Gently mix together and fill your muffin tins and sprinkle with any extra chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes! Let them cool (for one minute, exactly) - eat them hot with a chunk of butter!
My (not so) Pro Tips:
Use a large scoop like this one to fill your muffin tins perfectly and evenly each time!
Use silicone muffin tins so that you can pop the muffins out quickly and beautifully each time
