Who doesn't have old or should I say "really ripe bananas" sitting around. We always seem to have this problem in our household...probably because I always, every week buy bananas. I can't help it. I need to see them in my grocery basket. This problem does have one good outcome...see below.
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
2 cups mashed, very ripe bananas (about 4 large)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter; melted
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease & flour 12 large muffin cups.
In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda & salt. Stir in chocolate chips.
In small bowl, blend bananas, melted butter, milk, eggs & vanilla. Add to flour mixture, stirring only until just blended (do not over mix.) Fill muffin cups (almost all the way full.)
Bake 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown & toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let stand several minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool.
