Hello Lovely Readers 🙂
Yes, we’re on a chocolate chip roll this winter. Its cold out, its easy, kids love them, The End. LOL
Here is a great recipe which makes some really moist muffins that everyone from baby to daddy enjoy.
The original recipe is from TheBakingChocolaTess.com. I make a couple of revisions as I’ve gone along and they are just as yummy. I substitute the white sugar for brown sugar and instead of butter I’ve used applesauce for less fat. Just FYI,They do come out a bit more dense when you use apple sauce.
Here it is. Enjoy!
- 4 ripe bananas, medium or 1 & 1/3 cups of mashed banana
- 1/3 cup melted butter cooled OR 1/3 cup applesauce(these will make them a bit more dense)
- 2/3 cup Redpath brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- A pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup Ghirardelli semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease your muffin tins
Peel bananas and throw them in a big bowl with the melted butter and smash it all together with a fork.
Keep blending until the mixture is creamy and smooth, not chunky.
Add sugar, egg and vanilla and mix just until combined.
Stir in salt and baking soda.
Add flour and chocolate chips and mix until just combined. Do not overmix!
Divide into muffin tins.
Bake until cake tester or toothpick pulls out cleanly for about 18 minutes
