I am not sure which makes me happier?
We love a good banana muffin (with chocolate of course), but there is some problems with making Banana Muffins… Firstly I thought I didn’t know how, and Secondly only broccoli goes bad here. Never a banana!
I solved the first issue when my little sister asked me to make banana muffins while I was at her house. She pulled out the recipe. The same recipe my sister Kat uses… Yes a recipe out of a cook book I gave them. Yes a recipe from one of my friends… Maybe I haven’t tried muffins in a few years is the bigger problem! I made Amie and Rich a huge batch of muffins, and they got consumed very quickly. Apparently I can make banana muffins!With the right recipe of course.
But that does not solve problem #2 the fact that I have 4 children who love fruit. I have Josh. I once seen Josh eating a pear, beside him was 2 oranges, a banana and a yogurt, to top it off. I have never had more than 1 banana go “too ripe”. I took it as a challenge, double the amount I bought… Nope didn’t work. Until finally I bought double the amount of ugly banana’s. Not one got eaten! I bought 6 or 8 lbs last week, which means lots of muffins!!! Yay me! 40 muffins later with enough in the freezer to make more later, I am banana muffin content!
Here is the recipe, it belongs to Bunny Kitt from Cranbrook. Bunny is a great cook, a frugal cook, and the smartest woman I have ever met in my life!!!
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup mashed banana
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips (Ya right, better double that!)
Blend first 4 ingredients, mix well, add all the dry ingredients and mix lightly. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
