One of the new topics I decided to post about is recipes. I love finding new recipes on other blogs for my family to enjoy , so I decided to post recipes that my family enjoys on my blog. So, here's a recipe for Banana Chip Muffins.
This recipe has 10 ingredients and is quick and easy to make.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Instead of getting a spoon dirty and having more to wash, I just stirred it with the teaspoon I used to measure the baking powder.
Combine the egg, milk, oil, banana and applesauce. I needed half a cup of mashed banana and the one pictured didn't quite give me enough, so I had to mash another one.
Here's the wet ingredients combined.
Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Fold in the chocolate chips. It always smells so good when I open up the chocolate chip bag!
Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. I could've cleaned up my spills on the pan to make it look prettier, but I left them there to show you it's o.k. to make mistakes and spill a little batter.
It ended up making 4 more than it said it should. That's lucky for me because that gives me one extra day of muffins!
Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
Here are the finished muffins! After they cool, I'll wrap them individually in plastic wrap and set aside 3 for tomorrow's breakfast. The rest I'll place in a gallon freezer bag and put in the outside chest freezer. I'll take out 3 the night before we're going to eat them, so they have time to thaw out before breakfast. These muffins made enough for 5 breakfasts.
