One month from today, my daughter will be 4 years old. How the heck did that happen already? I used to get a little annoyed when people said, “enjoy it – time goes by SO fast!”
But you know what? They’re right.
Fortunately, Bella and I have MANY days together in the kitchen to look forward to, regardless of how fast time goes by. These delicious muffins are our latest creation. And she loved every bite.
Quick & Easy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
slightly adapted from Pixelated Crumb
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper liners.
Beat oil, sugar, eggs and bananas until combined in a large bowl (I did this by hand). Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Fold into wet ingredients, being careful not to overmix. Add vanilla and chocolate chips and stir until just combined.
Spoon into muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from tin and cool on rack.
