Easily one of Nicole’s signature treats. People she works with actually provide her with bananas just so she’ll make these muffins to bring into her work. This simple recipe can be used to make a loaf as well.
Just the stuff you need
- 2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
- 1 cup (250 mL) sugar
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
- 1 cup (250 mL) mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
- 1/3 cup (75 mL) milk
- 3 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 cup (175 mL) milk chocolate chips divided.
What to do with that stuff
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Decide if you want to make muffins(or a loaf)…
Line muffin pan with cute little muffin papers. This makes clean up much easier in the end. (Spray bottom of loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. )
In large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add bananas, milk, oil and egg; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in 3/4 cups of chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into muffin pan (or loaf pan); sprinkle with additional chocolate chips.
Bake 60-70 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove muffins (or bread) from pan to cooling rack; cool completely.
