Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Muffins

This is my favorite banana bread recipe that I make as muffins. This recipe makes 18 good sized muffins. Making these as muffins instead of loaves cuts the cooking time by almost a third. The bread takes about an hour to cook and these cook in about 20 minutes.
They are perfect with a hot cup of tea or coffee! 


2 cups + 1 tsp. All purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick of softened butter
3/4 c light brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
1/4 c vegetable oil
2 over ripe bananas 
1/2 c semi sweet or dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350* degrees.

Combine 2 cups flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl whip with an electric mixer the two bananas, egg, vegetable oil, brown sugar, and butter until bananas are completely mashed and incorporated. 

Add the dry mix into the wet mix until smooth. 

In a small bowl add the chocolate chips and 1 tsp of flour until the chips are coated in flour. This will keep the chips from sinking to the bottom of the muffins. Then gently fold in the chips into the muffin mix.

With a medium scoop divide the mix into 18 lined muffin cups. If you are not using muffing liner makes sure to thoroughly spray the muffin pan. 

Bake for 20-23 minutes until a toothpick or knife comes out clean when inserted into the center of one of the muffins.
