Bananas are pretty cheap as it is, but I just learned that the Davis Food Co-op keeps a basket of discounted overripe organic bananas, which you can buy by the banana instead of by the bunch. Yesterday I picked up a couple of those to make this these morning:
Elisa's Modified Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 stick butter
- 1 or 2 bananas, mashed
- 1 egg
- 4 oz. chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
- In another bowl, blend together butter, bananas and eggs, then pour over dry ingredients. You'll probably have to add a little water to get it all incorporated. Don't worry about it being lumpy.
- Grease the cups of a cupcake pan, and fill them up halfway with the batter.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
Have one with vanilla yogurt for breakfast, one with vanilla ice cream for dessert, and one in a Ziploc bag for a snack. Hope you enjoy!
