Chocolate chip Banana Muffins

Baking is one of the things my kids enjoy more than anything I started baking with Lily when she was really little and she's getting to the point that she can practically do it all on her own! Charlie has fun with it as well and I so enjoy the time that we all spend baking together. Also, baking teaches them a skill that will be necessary for them to have as they get older (being able to cook and read and follow recipes). Yes, even my boys will learn to cook and bake - they will make FABULOUS husbands someday. ;)

While, of course, we love to bake cookies and pies and desserts around here, one of our favorite things to bake are muffins. I have a ton of muffin recipes and we really like making them all - plus there are so many great seasonal ones like pumpkin or berry muffins. However, one if our favorites are the chocolate chip banana muffins. The kids have a blast smooshing the bananas and, of course, licking the bowl - yum! The thing I like best about this recipe is that I usually have all of the ingredients in my pantry. Just add bananas!

Chocolate chip banana muffins

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. Salt
1 /2 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick (1/2 c.) butter, softened
1 c. Sugar
2 eggs
2-3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp. milk
1/2 c. Chocolate chips 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line 18 muffin cups. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder salt and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, blending well. Mix in bananas and milk. Finally fold in chocolate chips. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 25 minutes or into a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Enjoy!
