Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
3 ripe bananas
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 semi-sweet chocolate chips
Makes 12 muffins
Preheat oven to 350 and oil muffin tin with vegetable oil.
In a large bowl mash bananas, then stir in next 6 ingredients (through salt).
Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well, until dough is uniform.
Gently fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into muffin tins, filling 1/2-3/4 of the way full. Then sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on each muffin.
Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Tip: I didn't have regular sugar on hand, so instead I used packets of Splenda - 13 packets is the equivalent of 1/2 cup.
