Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

My intention this morning was to make a zucchini loaf, I already made one and it was delicious, I had the zucchini to make another one but no can of crushed pineapple.  I didn't want to run out to the store, when you're in the mood for baking, you just want to get started, so I made muffins instead - those three speckled bananas were begging to be used!!

My husband picked up this cookbook for me a few years ago, it has the best "Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins" - it's the one I always make!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

3 large bananas, mashed

1/4 cup butter/margarine, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 cup chocolate chips

Combine sugar and margarine, blend well.  Add egg, mashed bananas and vanilla.  Fold in dry ingredients.  Add chocolate chips.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.  

Hot out of the oven...

Eat them with a speck of butter or plain - either way, they're delicious!!!


  1. Looks good! I made Rachel Ray's chocolate chip banana loaf bread last month. That was really good.

  2. I so agree! When you are in the mood to bake, you just want to get going. I felt like baking this morning but we're light on ingredients and I didn't feel like shopping. I'll have to get out there eventually...
