Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

What do you know with a overly ripe banana and a pack of chocolate chips which will expire in 3 weeks? So, I googled "banana chocolate chips" and the first recipe that came up was Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin.

So I searched and look around for more recipes, mostly look about the same and true to my nature, I would change a bit here and there just to fit to what I have available in my kitchen. It could end up in disaster but I go with my gut and pray for the best. I should stop doing a bit of dish and dash when it comes to baking but I am a chinese girl who loves Chinese cooking. Thus I am too used to "dishing" and "dashing" on ingredients. A little less sugar, a little bit more choc chips....leaving it to all my gut feel and yup praying that it will work.

No worries, it did.

Simple ingredients :

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large)
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips or more :)

Simple steps :

1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Mix mashed bananas, egg, melted butter and milk in another bowl.

2. Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients just until blended. Do not mix too hard or overmix.

3. Stir in chocolate chips.

4. Put the batter into the cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Pre heat oven to 350°F and bake the muffins for about 25 minutes. Transfer muffins to rack to cool.

Well, with a little gut feel, a little dish and dash, it turned out well. This time :) Phew!

Miss Lucky Piggy - actually it turned out smaller than I expected but then again I only filled a bit less than 3/4 of the muffin cups. I think if I want bigger muffins, I have to fill it up all the way to the top. :)

Hi Christine,

I like to use cup cos I am too "lazy" to measure. Using the cup just make it easy for me :) I cup of flour is about 125gm. It would be different for sugar, flour etc. Just check out the online conversions on which items you want to convert.
