Simply Awesome Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins

I love banana's.  Most of the time I'm eating them with peanut butter and Nutella.  Today I wanted to make something that I could have for breakfast or even a late night snack.  I found this recipe on the web but I changed it just a tad.

Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cup butter melted (unsalted)
2 cups mashed overripe bananas (I used 3 big ones)
3 eggs
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsps. of baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup of chocolate chips (coated in flour)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two 6-cup muffin tins with liners.  I had extra batter so I did another 6 cups later.  In a large bowl, combine the sugars, melted butter, bananas, and eggs; mix well.  In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet and whisk until the batter is evenly moistened.  Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, bake for about 25-28 minutes, until a toothpick is inserted in the center and comes out clean.  Let the muffins cool for about 10 minutes, before turning them out on a rack to cool.
Serve with ice cold milk! Enjoy!

Recent Comments/ New Job

I just wanted to thank everybody who left comments on my blog, it makes me happy that people are actually reading this.  Oh by the way I am WORKING now... I am a teachers aide/assistant/lunch helper/diaper changer.. I'm having a lot of fun teaching the little kids, mostly the 2 year olds.  Not too fun is getting sick from the many germ refrigerators that I play with each day.  I've been getting colds more often that I can even remember and I think I had some sort of flu last week... So back to making chicken soup or Jewish penicillin this weekend definitely!!!
