Monkey Chip Muffins


So I am updating the site a little and trying to make things more uniform and more easily accessible. You will see small changes throughout the site the most prevalent changes will be on the What's for Dinner page.  With these changes I thought I would repost one of my favorite recipes, Monkey Chip Muffins.  These are the perfectly balanced banana chocolate chip muffins will satisfy any sweet craving and having coming back for more!

Monkey Chip Muffins


Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Bake Time: 20 minutes
Yields: 12 muffins

Ingredients:

Wet ingredients:
3 large or 4 small ripe bananas- peeled and mashed
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla

Dry ingredients:
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup of your favorite chocolate chips
(We are a dark chocolate family. We like to use Ghirardelli bitter sweet chocolate chips. The
recipe would still be wonderful with semisweet or even milk chocolate chips.)
* If your family likes thing a little nutty feel free to also fold in 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or
walnuts. We omit this ingredient because while Joel likes nuts...Jude not so much.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tins. (I like to use Pam for Baking. It has a little flour
in it and it works great for recipes like this.)

In one bowl combine all of the wet ingredients. (No need for a hand or stand mixer for any part of
this recipe. Just a standard wooden spoon works fine.) In a second bowl whisk together the dry
ingredients. (No need to sift. Just whisk thoroughly.) Pour wet ingredients into dry
ingredients. Mix well. Then fold in chocolate chips.

Scoop heaping 1/4 cups on the batter into prepared muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes in the 350
degree oven. Check to ensure muffins are done by inserting a toothpick (Push toothpick into the
middle of the muffin. If the toothpick is clean when removed the muffins are done.)

Allow muffins to slightly cool for 5 to 10 minutes in the tins before removing. These are great
warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
