Those Darn Muffins


Sorry to tease you for so long.  But this recipe is worth it!

It all started with this.

Straight up- the muffins as printed are DELICIOUS!  But, as you'll come to find out, I cannot leave a recipe alone.  So I have tweaked this particular recipe at least 14 times.

I really love muffins.

The best thing about this recipe??  It's soooo forgiving.  Wheat flour?  No sugar?  No Eggs?  Almond milk?  I've substituted almost everything in the darn things and they still come out fantastic.  Blueberry.  Strawberry blueberry.  Banana.  Banana Chocolate chip.  The possibilities are endless when it comes to flavor.

This is the recent not-so-healthy Banana Chocolate Chip version I made.  I'll be posting other versions in the coming weeks (maybe Muffin Fridays??) 

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Adapted from All Recipes

1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C packed brown sugar
2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
2 heaping t baking powder

1 egg
1/3 C milk
1/3 C oil (vegetable, canola)
1 t vanilla

2 ripe bananas, chopped into pieces (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 C chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400

In a large bowl whisk flour, sugars, salt, and baking powder together.

Place oil in a one cup glass measuring cup.  Add egg and then fill up to the one cup line with milk.  Add a splash of vanilla.

Mix the cup of oil, egg, and milk with the dry mixture until just combined.  (Don't over mix- you'll get rock muffins!!)

Fold in banana pieces and chocolate chips.

Fill greased muffin tins almost to the top.  Bake 10-15 minutes, or until muffins brown around the edges and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Mmmm, muffins. 

Happy Friday!!
