Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

These delicious banana mini muffins with mini chocolate chips make the perfect afternoon treat. Just two bites and they're gone! Serve them with milk or a nice cup of tea. Denser that your typical muffins, they are substantial but still cakey and light. I make them whenever we have a couple of bananas that have passed their prime. These just disappear!

Here's the recipe:
1 stick unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
1 large egg
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup chocolate mini-chips

Preheat the oven to 375. Butter a 24 cup mini muffin pan. Combine the melted and cooled butter, mashed bananas, egg, sugar, vanilla essence, and beat for 1 minute. Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to the banana mixture and beat just until blended. Add the chocolate mini-chips. Spoon into mini muffin pan and bake for 18 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes, pop them out with a spoon, and enjoy! If you prefer regular size muffins, bake for 25 minutes.

(Note: be sure to let the melted butter cool --you don't want it to cook the egg.)

Oh yum. Those look darling--and delicious. And I just happen to have several extremely ripe (meaning perfect) bananas on the kitchen counter. : )
