Banana Choc Chip Muffin ~

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Well, I thought I had another recipe ready for posting but alas, I looked through my pictures and NOPE! No pictures! Now what to do!?!

Add to that, Tiffany needed to be driven into town and it is her night to cook dinner. I was not feeling up to cooking dinner so I texted Mike, hoping he’d want to eat out somewhere. After all, we had just been blessed with some cash and we thought we’d use it to eat out. I had just seen in my email that Kevin Harvick  placed in the top 10 over the weekend so we could get a free Bloomin’ Onion at the Outback. So off we went.

The problem with that is that we got home around 7:30 pm and I still don’t have a recipe to share. I’ve already shared my go-to desserts. What’s a novice blogger to do? Make muffins! The kids will like having them this morning and Mike enjoyed one last night when they were fresh out of the oven.

So I bring you Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins. Oh! I must tell you that these have an odd ingredient but push through and try them because you cannot even tell it is in there! Honest!

Combine 1½ cups of flour, (I use about ½ cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose flour.) 1 cup sugar,  1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt.

Dry Ingredients ~ excuse the lousy pictures. I didn’t have Tiffany home to help me out this time.) ;)

Then combine a slightly beaten egg with ½ cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise. Yes, just do it! ;) Stir until just moistened.

Muffins 2 ~ Lifeofjoy.meAdd in 3 ripe bananas, mashed. I mash mine with a potato masher. Two of these were frozen when I started this recipe.

Muffins 4 ~ Lifeofjoy.meStir. Now here is where I deviated from the original recipe a little bit…ooops! It said to spoon into the greased muffin tins now and then sprinkle chocolate chips on top but I stirred in the chocolate chips and then scooped it into the pans. You pick how you want to do it.

Add Chocolate Chips ~ Lifeofjoy.meI use an ice cream scoop to spoon it into the greased muffin tins.
