Bruised bananas gross me out. One brown spot and I won’t eat it. Instead of letting them go to waste I decided to bake something delicious: banana chocolate chip muffins!

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used nonfat lactose-free milk and it worked just fine!)
  • 2 mashed bananas (the riper the better!)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup nutmeg (or pumpkin pie spice)
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line muffin tin and set aside. In a large bowl, combine egg, milk, banana, oil and brown sugar. In a small bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gradually add dry ingredients to banana mixture until moist (it might still be a little lumpy). Gently mix in chocolate chips. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool or enjoy while the chocolate is nice and melted :)
