Is anyone else out there as obsessed with bananas as I am? I have to eat one everyday. It’s a compulsion. I should be glad that I am addicted to something healthy for me instead of something horrible like cigarettes, though.
When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it out. Bananas + chocolate chips FOR BREAKFAST?! I will do whatever I can to sneak dessert-type foods into regular meals. Hehe.
Everyone that tasted these really liked them, so I definitely recommend trying them out (especially if you’re a banana addict like me!).
They were not very time consuming and make a great on-the-go breakfast.
The recipe says it makes two dozen, but I didn’t get quite get 2 dozen out of it – I only got 21. What an odd number. I never quite yield exactly what a recipe calls for, though.
Chocolate Banana Muffins
Prep: 25 minutes. Bake: 15 minutes + cooling. Yield: 2 dozen.
– 1/2 cup butter, softened
– 1/2 cup sugar
– 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 large)
– 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
– 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
– 1 cup (6 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, banana, and vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda and add to creamed mixture just until combined. Stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half full.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire rack to cool completely.
