The Ultimate Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin
adapted from dinners for a year and beyond
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup oil – I use extra light virgin olive oil
5 small very ripe bananas
1 cup chocolate chips
sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a regular sized cupcake pans with cupcake liners and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the oil; the batter will be very dry. Mash the bananas in a bowl and add them along with any of the accumulated juices and the chocolate chips to the flour mixture. Stir to combine.
Fill the muffin papers almost to the top and sprinkle with a generous amount of sugar. Bake for 20 minutes rotating the pan once during baking. Let cool in the pan for 5 – 10 minutes then serve.
