Since moving to SK we have had more bananas in the house than any other fruit, and they are lasting long before they are being eaten, I have to hide them in the cupboards so they last more than a day. My kids would eat bananas all day long nothing but bananas if I let them. I managed to keep a few to ripen to make some chocolate chip banana muffins.
- 3 ripe bananas
- 3 tbsp oil
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips, I use semi-sweet
Mash the bananas, add oil, egg and sugar, mix well, you can use a mixer. Add vanilla, baking soda, baking powder and flour. Looking good?
Make sure to grease your muffin tin (I usually forget for the first couple I fill) and add about 1/4 – 1/3 of a cup to each spot.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
Yum, right now, writing and uploading these pictures, I wish I had some more ripe bananas to make a bedtime snack.
I think the girls enjoyed these as much, if not more than the actual bananas, I know I did. Next on the “ripe banana” to make list: banana bread. I haven’t made one in years! Hubby is looking forward to having one so I’ll have to time it with when he is home from working away.
