Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Oh pregnancy.....a time of insatiable hunger, restless mornings (and nights), and undeniable cravings for fresh baked goods....
Good thing I have all of this stuff handy!
I woke up last Saturday morning at approximately 6:30 AM and I really really really wanted a muffin. Not a dunkin donuts muffin that was probably sitting on the shelf for a good 48 hours. I'm talking about the good stuff. Fortunately, my pantry was stocked with the following:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
Since I was half asleep while making these muffins, I pretty much just threw everything in a bowl and mixed it up with my hand mixer. Not the usual step by step guide, I know, but this was desperation.
After I filled up my regular-sized muffin pan I still had quite a bit of batter left. So I busted out the mini muffin pan as well, topping most of the muffins with a cluster of chocolate chips.
Bake in a 350F oven for 12 minutes (minis) or 25 min (maxis) and enjoy your sweet sweet craving satisfaction in your PJ's, with some coffee.
Have a great weekend everyone!
