Banana Choco Chip Muffins

Something about Banana's is like a comfort food to me. They always seem to make me feel better. And everyone knows chocolate helps you feel better; To me at least. And I've never made Banana Muffins, to honest. Everything that I've made, and I had still never made Banana Muffins. I needed to make something with bananas because my bananas were extremely ripe and they needs to be used. So, Banana Muffins it was!

They surprising came out very moist! And there was enough Banana with chocolate in each muffin. It was a perfect muffin! I like it when you bite into a muffin and theres a hunk in it; I get so thrilled when that happens! I didn't think there'd really be to many hunks, since the banana's were so ripe I thought it would be smooth, but to my surprise there was. Made me happy :]

The muffins came out great, and I'm sure the people at work will love these. I decided to make these for everyone at work. They love banana bread, but it'd be just as good in a muffin, so I'm sure they'll love these!


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

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 12 large muffin cups.

2. In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. In small bowl, blend bananas, melted butter, milk, eggs and vanilla. Add to flour mixture, stirring until just blended. Don't over mix! Fill muffin cups.

3. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool for several minutes.

Best book ever! Totally recommend this book! Have to read 'Twilight' and 'New Moon' first, though ;]

Yeah I thought your blog name was really nice! It's cool to find other teens who like baking. I feel like there aren't that many.

I was thinking of trying WHITE chocolate-blueberry muffins. Or maybe white choc and raspberrry would be better.

I found this on food_porn on LJ. I had all the ingredients on hand and HAD to make these. OH MY GOD! They are amazing. I think I removed them from the oven at just the right time as they were truly perfect. Thanks for the recipe. It's definitely a keeper.
