banana chip muffins
3-5 overripe bananas (em calls them "dirty bananas")
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 1/2 c canola oil
1 t vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
2 t baking soda
pinch of salt
1 c mini (or regular) chocolate chips
preheat oven to 375 degrees. grease or line a pair of large-cup muffin tins (yield: 12 muffins) or two regular-cup muffin tins (yield: 24 muffins).
technically, you should sift your dry ingredients, then mix the others and add the dry to the wet.
for those of us who can't be bothered with multiple bowls, mash the bananas, mix with sugar. add oil, then eggs, then vanilla. add the dry ingredients all together (just be sure the baking soda isn't lumpy) and mix well.
stir in chocolate chips. pour into muffin cups (about 2/3rds full). bake large muffins for approx 30 min, regular for less than that (maybe 20-25? sorry, don't really know. just keep checking them).
cool and enjoy with a glass of milk. also good with a smear of peanut butter.
