Make it Monday!

Gran's Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Banana's are a rare commodity in our house... as are these muffins, not because we don't buy them but because they just don't last. Between Delaney and me bananas don't make it a week in this house. In order to make these muffins I have to buy the bananas the store sells on clearance because they are already bruised and black,and when I do make them they are gone within a few days! Thses are the most moist and tasty muffins ever made. The recipe was found online about 4 years ago when I couldn't find the one my mom used to make and now it is the only recipe that I make, I use it for banana bread too. I have received so many comments and compliments on this recipe it's almost unbelievable how much people like it! 

So here you are my muffin recipe!

Gran's Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 mashed bananas 
1 1/2 cups flour 
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Cream together the butter, sugar and egg, beat well. Add flour sifted with salt and soda alternately with mashed bananas. Beat until smooth. 
Bake at 350 degrees, 1 hr for bread or 2-30 mins for muffins.

This is the original recipe but I usually don't sift the flour soda and salt, I mix it in a separate bowl and just add it in. I do also add a splash of milk if I don't have 3 bananas, and I have been known to add a dash of nutmeg sometimes too...

Give it a try! You might just like them as much as we do! 
Do you have a recipe I should try? If you are stopping by to have a look let me know what you love to make!
