What we did on this rainy Saturday Afternoon...

    Everyone has their GO-TO Banana Muffin/Bread recipe that they use whenever they have a bunch of over ripe banana's laying around.  I received my Banana Muffin/ Bread recipe from my mother. These muffins are one of the first things I taught myself to make once I left the nest. They are nothing extravagant, just plain ole' Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. But my family loves them, and when I make them they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins:


2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 egg
1/2 cup butter, melted
walnuts (optional)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp. baking powder
3 Lg. banana's, mashed
pinch of salt
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup water


(1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
(2) Spray a muffin tray with cooking spray. (Or you can use liners if you prefer)
(3) Mash banana's in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add the egg, melted butter, sugar, vanilla, and some salt. Stir to combine.
(4) In a 2nd medium sized mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and baking powder.
(5) Combine wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.
(6) Add the water and the milk. Stir to combine. This will loosen the batter.
(7) Add the chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts if desired. Stir to combine.
(8) Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin tray.
(9) Bake for 18-20 minutes. Or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean.

* If you would prefer to make Banana Loaf instead, just pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes.

Recipe Yields 12 Muffins or 1 Loaf.
