Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins


It is truly heartbreaking to see those bananas getting shunned just because they have changed color and have got an over ripe appearance. So this can be a new way of giving the ripe bananas a makeover and not only making them being accepted but loved by all.

And let me tell you one more after effect of these muffins, that since I have started making them, no one in my house are ready to eat bananas any more. As if they are meant only for this. This is what my daughter has in mind.




 Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins is a very easy and no fuss recipe. All the ingredients get mixed in one bowl. Another good way of using ripe bananas is Banana Bread, a recipe which I had posted long back. Both are equally good and very easy to prepare.



Serving: 12 medium size muffins
Preparation time :15 minutes
Baking time : 25 minutes



Ingredients:

  • 1 & 1/2 cups of plain flour
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 80 ml of melted butter (1/3 rd of a cup)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Method:
(1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Arrange cupcakes cases into the baking tray.

(2) In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with help of a fork till the mixture looks like a puree.

(3) To the mashed bananas add melted butter.

(4) Now add sugar and mix well till it is fully dissolved.

(5)Add vanilla essence and egg, till it the mixture is well combined.


(6) Now slowly add all the dry ingredients like, plain flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder and baking soda.

(7) Mix well to make a smooth batter without any lumps.
Finally add Chocolate Chips and mix well.



(8) Pour the prepared batter half way into each cupcake case.

(9) Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 to25 minutes or till the muffins are fully cooked.



Note: Bananas have to be ripe. Firm Bananas will not give the same result. All ingredients should be in room temperature.
