Banana Chip Muffins


My kids haven’t been eating bananas like they usually do lately. I had more over rip bananas to use up. This is another banana recipe that I love. It comes from an old Quick Cooking magazine (now Simple and Delicious). It’s another great combo of bananas and chocolate. I love the texture that the oats give this muffin. It makes it a heartier muffin.

Banana Chip Muffins

1 egg
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1-1/3 cups)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips (I use regular and mix in with the dry ingredients so they don’t sink)
In a large mixing bowl, beat egg, oil and sugar until smooth. Stir in bananas. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt; stir into the banana mixture just until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.
