Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Recipe

By Jess A: Banana lovers, the new Harris Teeter in McHenry row has a deal for you.  On certain days, they sell large bunches of ripe bananas from anywhere between 50 cents to $1….that’s right…anywhere from 8-12 ripe bananas for 50 cents to $1.  So of course, we decided to buy them.  One main reason, is chocolate chip banana muffins.  I love the combination chocolate and banana and what better way to enjoy them, than in a delicious baked good.What you need:

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flower
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • heaping 1/2 cup of chocolate chips

What to do:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In the large bowl of a stand mixer mash bananas with fork or potato masher
  3. After the bananas are mashed, use the paddle attachment to beat in the egg, brown sugar, and oil
  4. In a separate bowl, sift the dry ingredients together
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, and mix until well incorporated
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips with a spoon
  7. Fill lined or greased muffin tin 1/2-2/3 (depending on what size muffins you want) full
  8. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a inserted toothpick comes out clean
  9. Enjoy! These treats are great for breakfast, or a snack at anytime of the day.
