I should not have made these muffins! I'm going to gain weight just because they're so yummy! Although, they are fairly good for you. I always use whole wheat flour in all of my recipes, so at least they're whole grain. I added chocolate chips because I was cleaning and there was half of a bag sitting in my cupboard. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (or however much you have left over in your cupboard!)
Mix together all of the dry ingredients with a whisk in a small bowl.
Mix together all of the wet ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix with a spoon until just thoroughly combined. Mixing too much will make them tougher.
Heat oven to 350 degrees and let batter sit in bowl while oven is heating.
I ALWAYS make mini-muffins.
I use a cookie scoop and small muffin liners to make my life easier.
I know the liners are not eco-friendly, but all of the washing and scrubbing it takes to get dried muffin off my muffin pan is not eco-friendly with all of the water it takes either. So, I've decided mini-muffin liners is the way to go. I get the huge sleeve at GFS. The box lasts me a really long time.
BAKE at 350 for 9 minutes for mini-muffins. Makes 48 mini-muffins.
Bake 17 - 20 minutes for regular sized muffins. Makes 12 normal sized muffins.
All ovens are different, so adjust according to your oven.
Yummo! Do you enjoy making muffins? What's your favorite muffin recipe?
