If you’re like us our schedules are crazy pretty much 7 days a week. If it’s not hockey or lacrosse or the kids going to work out there are animals or work that has me running in a hundred different directions. So when I know things are going to be busy I can whip up a batch of these muffins and feel good about the kids snacking throughout the day.
We rely on banana bread but I know when it’s still sitting on the counter the next day that the kids and hubby need a break and something different. That where’s these Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins come into play.
I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine.
Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
My kids love these chocolate chip banana muffins. It's a great way to change up the everyday banana bread for something different and fun. They are easy to whip up in the morning and enjoy for breakfast or as an all-day snack for our busy schedules.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Grease your muffin tins.
Peel bananas and put 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 about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick pulls out cleanly.
** Note: I don't use any liners for this recipe as the muffins are so moist they tend to just stick to the paper and become too messy.
I sift my flour when baking and recommend it as it makes for a lighter flour and also makes for a lighter, fluffier muffin. We purchased our sifter on amazon, it's been great and we use it frequently. You can shop it here: https://amzn.to/2Jr7J7z
