The best banana chocolate chip muffin you will ever eat.

This week is all about recipes!  And I've got a couple good ones for you!
I'm starting you off with my Banana Chocolate Chip muffins.  I love me a good muffin, and I think this is one of the best muffins I have ever had.  No joke.  It is by no means healthy, other than the fact that it has bananas in it.  You can "health it up" if you want though.  I'll note the substitutions below.  Also, I'm new at photographing food, so please bear with me!  :)


INGREDIENTS:

3 over ripe bananas
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sat
1 3/4 cup flour (Healthier: whole wheat flour)
1/3 cup melted butter (Healthier: substitute with unsweetened applesauce)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (or however much you like!)

DIRECTIONS:
--Start by mashing your bananas up with a fork in a large bowl.
--Add in the 3/4 cup sugar and egg- mix well.

--Stir in the melted butter.
--Slowly add in your 1 3/4  cup flour, baking soda and baking powder.
--Stir in your chocolate chips!

--Pour into your muffin pan.  I have a great scoop from Pampered Chef that works perfectly.

--Consider throwing some sprinkles on top of a few to entice your children to eat them!  They also add a nice little CRUNCH.

--Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes.  
--Filling the muffins cups almost to the top (as pictured above) will get you 12 nice sized muffins.

THE FINISHED PRODUCT:


I like making these on Sunday and then freezing them in individual bags (or sometimes 2 to a bag) so they taste fresh all week.  I just grab one and throw it in my purse for breakfast at work, or throw it in the kids' lunchboxes for their school breakfast/snack. 

KID APPROVED!!!
