These muffins pop up in my kitchen and my sister-in-law’s kitchen frequently – pretty much whenever there are 3 ripe bananas that need to be used. They stay moist and are kinda healthy.
This recipe is from King Arthur Whole Grain Baking.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (3 large)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin.
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, banana and honey and mix until smooth. Beat in eggs. Whisk dry ingredients together. Add to egg mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Remove from mixer and give a good stir to make sure all the ingredients are incorporated.
Fill muffin cups almost to the top. Bake 20-25 minutes, until firm in the center.
