Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins :: Recipe

My husband and I love bananas, but we don’t always get around to eating the entire bunch before they get overly ripe. After making about a dozen loafs of banana bread, I decided I needed to find another use for our ripe bananas.

As a lover of anything with chocolate, I did a google search for “banana chocolate chip” and I found this recipe for Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins on Little Miss Moma (she has great pics for each step of the directions). I have made these muffins a handful of times and each time they have come out great! This last time I sprinkled some Sugar in the Raw on top of each muffin before baking and it added a great touch.

Here is the recipe from Little Miss Moma with only two mods (I use  a full cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup finely ground walnuts). Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 or 3 RIPE bananas mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Beat the SOFTENED butter and white sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, mashed bananas, and vanilla and mix well.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, brown sugar, and salt and mix until blended.  Add chocolate chips and walnuts and stir until well mixed.
  • Line muffin pan with paper muffins cups, and spoon batter into cups until each is  about 3/4 full  (if you want, sprinkle each muffin with Sugar in the Raw or another large sugar crystal before baking).
  • Bake at  for 20-30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
