Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have an honest question:

Who doesn’t love some muffins?!

 

Muffins are great, especially when you got kids and they woke you up at four in the morning and they want you to cook breakfast. Muffins to the rescue!

 

By that, I mean that I made the muffins already some day before and they’re in an air-tight container ready to be tossed at a grumpy, hungry toddler with his cup of milk.

These are packed full of nutritious bananas and yummy chocolate chips, so even the picky ones will love it. (And if you smear a little salted butter on it…*gives that cheesy ‘okay’ sign*.)

 

These are so easy and simple to make with easy ingredients that you probably already have around.

 

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Makes 12 muffins.

3 very ripe bananasIMG_3490 (3)

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 tsp salt

 

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash up the bananas with a fork. They should easily mash up if ripe enough;  brown spots are perfectly fine. Add egg and beat in with fork, then mix in vegetable and vanilla.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together well, then add the wet ingredients. Stir in until the flour is just incorporated.
  4. Use an ice cream scoop to put into a non-stick muffin pan, a greased muffin pan, or into lined cups in the muffin pan about 1/2-3/4 full.
  5. Bake for 19 minutes or until toothpick inserted into one comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 5-10 minutes, then completely cool on a wire rack.
