I’ve been doing most of the food features throughout this year. It’s been a blast getting to explore new recipes and photograph them. I wanted to close out my final food feature with my favorite banana chocolate chip muffin recipe. I found this recipe on Pinterest over two years ago. The recipe is from a little blog called How to be Lovely. Since then, I’ve brought them to show choir, cross-country, the musical, and various other practices. Sometimes I just bring them to school and whoever finds me first gets one. These muffins have been a fun way for me to connect with others. I hope they continue to be made and passed out in the City High hallways in the coming years. So, without further ado, here is the recipe!
4 overripe bananas
1/3 cup of melted butter
3/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 & 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tins. Peel bananas and put them into the mixer. Mix until smooth. Add sugar, egg, and vanilla. Mix until just combined. Add salt and baking soda and stir. Pour in flour and mix. Add mini chocolate chips.
Divide into muffin tins. Bake until cake tester or toothpick pulls out cleanly, about 18 minutes.
