Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Stolen from feedingfourfood.blogspot.com

  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour (I use a mix of white and wheat)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 3 mashed bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, flour through chocolate chips.
  2. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas with the back of a fork and stir in the remaining wet ingredients until combined.
  3. Make a well in the dry ingredients by pushing the mix up against the side of the bowl.
  4. Plop the wet ingredients into the bowl and stir slowly, gently, almost folding the wet ingredients into the dry. Some dry pockets might still remain. Resist the urge to keep stirring.
  5. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, spoon batter evenly into 12 or so regular muffin cups.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 350' for 20-25 minutes. Tops will be cracked and browned when done and no goo will come out if you insert a toothpick--not accounting for the chocolate chips of course.
  7. Let sit for a few minutes then tap out onto a rack to finish cooling.
