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.
Then combine a slightly beaten egg with ½ cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise. Yes, just do it! Stir until just moistened.
Stir. 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.
Bake at 375º for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned and a knife tests mostly clean.
- 1½ cup flour (I used 1/2 cup whole wheat and 1 cup all purpose)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1/2 cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Mix flours, sugar, baking soda and salt in large bowl
- Beat egg in a small bowl.
- Stir in Miracle Whip or mayonnaise.
- Add to flour mixture
- Stir just until moistened.
- Stir in mashed bananas
- Stir in chocolate chips now or save and sprinkle on top after scooped in tins.
- Scoop into greased muffin tin.
- Bake at 375º for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned.
I hope you will enjoy these, I know my kids will.
Until next time, God bless,
