Tasty Tuesday: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is the best banana chocolate chip muffin recipe ever. Really. I've misplaced my recipe more times that I want to admit and I've googled similar recipes but not one has been the same.

Try them. They are so good.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 extra ripe bananas
2 eggs
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Puree bananas in a blender. (I just using a mixer on high speed.) In a medium bowl, beat pureed bananas, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla until well blended. In a large bowl, combine flower, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients. Pour in banana mixture. Mix until just blended. Spoon into well greased muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Remove from pan. Makes 12 muffins.

Seriously Tasty~ My kids love these, especially when warm out of the oven. Just a few minutes ago, my eldest (and most picky eater) saw the recipe and said, "Banana and chocolate? I'm glad I didn't know that. That doesn't sound good together." Never mind that he has been eating these for years and gobbled them up just yesterday morning before school.
So... even if you don't like bananas or chocolate (as if you could not like chocolate), try these. They are that good.

I'm linking up with Tasty Tuesday.

I have a banana chocolate chip muffin I make frequently. I'll have to make yours and see how they compare. The problem is that Matt doesn't like chocolate or bananas (I know!!) so the girls and I eat them all up in a day or two.

I do like banana chocolate chip as a combo, but don't have a go-to muffin recipe! Thanks for this recipe.

These are fantastic! My son fussed and fussed about them, and ended up loving them. Since I cook for food allergies, I swapped out EnerG egg replacer for the eggs and dairy-free margarine for the butter. I also used 2 cups whole wheat flour instead. Thanks so much for this. I'm going to share them on my blog soon and I will give you credit :)
