banana chocolate chip muffins!

Taking the time at night to make muffins makes the next morning’s breakfast so much better. Make some coffee, grab a muffin, maybe even boil an egg and you’ve got yourself a nice little meal. Not all muffins are created equal, however, and some of them are LOADED with fat and sugar. Bananas have a high sugar content to begin with, then for a muffin, you add some sugar and butter and everything else, and you’ve got yourself a breakfast that is very high in fat. With these muffins, I decided to replace the butter and oil with an extra banana (I just added a little oil so that the muffins wouldn’t stick to the wrappers) and what I ended up with was a delicious, moist, healthy(er) muffin!! Go ahead, treat yourself πŸ™‚

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

In a medium mixing bowl, mash your bananas with a fork. Whisk in eggs, milk, oil and sugars. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt and add to your wet mixture. Once combined, stir in chocolate chips. Spoon equal amounts of batter into muffin tins. Bake for 30 minutes. Cool in pan for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire rack.

ENJOY!
