Dawson’s Favorite Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Yields12 ServingsPrep Time15 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time35 mins

It's a great day for all of us when Jill makes these amazing muffins for Dawson. There are two uses for old bananas in our house. Most of them get peeled and put in the freezer to use in a smoothie. But some of them, the lucky ones, live to a ripe old age, and get privilege, nay, the honor, of being the start of Dawson's favorite Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. Old bananas, we salute you!

 3 Ripe Bananas
  cup Butter, Melted
 1 tsp Baking Soda
 ¼ tsp Salt
 ½ cup White Granulated Sugar
 1 Egg, Beaten
 1.50 cups All Purpose Flour
 ½ cup Chocolate Chips (More does't hurt - make it a rounded 1/2 cup!)

Preheat oven to 350 (I prefer 325 convection), and spray muffin pan with oil.


Melt butter in Microwave. Let it cool for a minute or two.


Add bananas to the buttery goodness.


Mash until smooth.


Mix in baking powder, vanilla, beaten egg, and salt.


Stir in sugar and flour.


Stir in chocolate chips.


Using a spoon, get enough batter to make them 2/3 to 3/4 full (12 muffin cups sort of evenly), and scrape into muffin pan with small spatula.


They are ready to go into the oven!


Bake for 20 minutes at 350 (or 325 Convection), take out when it looks perfect and a butter knife comes out clean!
