I have tried many banana chocolate chip muffin recipes and this one is by far my favorite. I tried adding more chocolate chips into this recipe but only failed as the muffin did not rise. These are great snack option for the kids. This recipe is taken from The Complete Light Kitchen by Rose Reisman. (In my picture below it looks like the bottoms of my muffins are burnt. They aren’t..I’m just a bad photographer! The cooking time of 15 minutes makes perfectly browned muffins)
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
3/4 cup ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 medium bananas)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt (or low fat sour cream)
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
!. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray 12 muffin cups with vegetable oil.
2. Using an electric mixer, beat together bananas, sugar, oil, egg and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until well mixed.
3. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Stir the banana and flour mixture together. Stir in the yogurt. Fold in the chocolate chips.
4. Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups and bake in centre of oven for 15 minutes and a tester inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean. Turn out and serve immediately.
