Banana Muffins

Standard

A couple weeks ago, I was looking for recipes for banana muffins because I had four really ripe bananas that I wanted to use up. Most of the recipes were basically the same, but I came across this recipe on the Livestrong website. It was the same basic ingredients, but it was put together differently than most cakes or muffins, so I thought I would give it a try and see if there was a difference in the final product.
The ingredients you need are 4-5 bananas, 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 eggs, 1tsp baking powder, and 2 cups of flour, I used whole wheat.
I started by mashing 4-5 very ripe bananas

Then add 1/2 cup of melted butter to the bananas and mix well…

Next, add the chocolate chips and 2 cups of flour.

Get your muffin tins ready… I made these just before Halloween, so I used Halloween cupcake liners.

Scoop the batter into the cupcake tins so they are about 2/3 full.

I thought I would make them a little fancier by adding a few chocolate chips…

I will admit, they are not the prettiest things I have ever made, but they are very good! They certainly didnt last that long!
