Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
creamy peanut butter
light brown sugar
dark chocolate chips or chunks
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease muffin tin or line with cupcake liners.
In a mixer with paddle attachment, combine mashed bananas, butter, peanut butter and brown sugar.
Add in egg and vanilla and mix.
Add 1 cup flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Mix until just moistened.
In a small bowl, mix chocolate chips and 1/4 cup flour, just to coat the chocolate chips (this keeps them from falling to the bottom of the muffins.
Using a spatula, fold in chocolate chips.
Divide batter evenly among the 12 cups. Batter should fill the cups all the way full.
Bake 22-25 minutes, or until tops are golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.
Allow muffins to cool 10 minutes in pan, then remove to wire rack to cool completely, or serve warm.
If you don't have dark chocolate chips you can substitute semi-sweet.
If I know I'll be using my mixer, I first add the bananas and let the mixer do the mashing!
