Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I recently found this recipe on  Pinterest and it looked so easy that I wanted to give it a try. I made a few small changes, but if you would like to see the original recipe you can find it at For the Love of Cooking


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 c heavy cream
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips


Combine butter, egg, bananas, heavy cream, peanut butter, heavy cream, and vanilla and blend until smooth. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. 

Add the dry mixture into the wet and mix until smooth. Then add the chocolate chips.  I coat the chocolate chips in a teaspoon of flour before mixing it into the batter so that they do not sink to the bottom. 

Spoon mixture into individual muffin cups. I use muffin liners and a scoop so that each muffin is about the same size. The original recipe says that it makes 12, but mine made 16 generously sized muffins.

Bake at 375* for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. 

These turned out wonderfully moist and will not last long around here!

Happy Eating!
