Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Tired of the same old banana bread? 🍌 Bake up a batch of these Banana- Chocolate Chip Muffins instead! These deiciously - moist muffins are perfect for breakfast, snack or dessert!
Today I wanted to bake up a quick snack for the kids. Last week I was thumbing through a new cookbook I received in the mail. I came across this recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. My little guy is a chocoholic as well as a muffin man so I knew this recipe would be perfect.

Not to mention I had a couple bananas in my fruit bowl just calling my name. I had everything I needed in the pantry so it worked out perfectly. Look how high and yummy these muffins baked up.  I literally had this recipe thrown together and in the oven in about 10 minutes. Don't you just love those kinds of recipes.

I mentioned above that I received a new cookbook in the mail. Well besides the cookbook. I also received COOKIES!!!! A couple weeks back a Tate's Bake Shop asked me if I would be interested in sampling some of their yummy cookies. 

Included with the cookies was a review copy of  Tate's New Bake Shop Cookbook. I said yes of course because who can turn down a good sampling of cookies. I had heard that the Tate's Bake Shop in South Hampton had some awesome goodies so I couldn't wait.

I was so excited the day my packaged arrived. I ripped open the box like a kid in a candy store. Pulling the boxes out as I read each cookie flavor I was in heaven. Oatmeal Raisin, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut and Chocolate Chip. One of my favorite cookies is white chocolate chip with macadamia nuts. 



 All of the cookies were crispy on the outside and buttery good on the inside.  My favorite cookie by far was the oatmeal raisin they were crispy yet chewy all at the same time. The cookbook was wonderful and all of the recipes were home style cookies, pies, cobblers, cakes and muffins. 


There was even healthy alternative chapter consisting of recipe like, Energy Bars, Whole Wheat Quick Bread, Sports Bars and Multi grain MuffinsBe on the look in the next couple weeks for Tate's Cinnamon Swirl Bread and their Coconut Birthday Cake.  The Coconut Cake has both buttermilk and cream of coconut, so I know it will be fabulous.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Ingredients:

2 - cups all purpose flour
2 - teaspoons baking powder
1/2 - teaspoon baking soda
1/2 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - cup salted butter or coconut oil
1/2 - cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 - cup sugar
1 - teaspoon vanilla extract
2 - large eggs
1 1/2 - cups mashed bananas
1/2 - cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
1 - cup chocolate chips
2 - tablespoons raw sugar for topping, optional

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan. Mix the flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Set aside.

Cream the butter and the sugars until they are lights and fluffy.

Add the vanilla and eggs and mix everything well. Mix in the bananas and sour cream. Fold in the flour mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin cups to about 3/4 full. The cups will be very full, but don't worry they wont spread over.

Sprinkle them with sugar or more chocolate chips. Bake them for 20 minutes or until a cake tester or toothpick inserted comes out of the center of one muffin clean.

Cook's Note: I wanted to note that I have had great results using one cup whole wheat flour + one cup all purpose flour, coconut oil and greek yogurt in this recipe.
