Yesterday I shared a post spotlighting the health benefits of bananas, so I thought it might be appropriate to share a banana recipe today. I don’t know about you, but I love banana chocolate chip muffins. This recipe is easy to make and includes some other healthy ingredients, including walnuts and flax seed and is one of my favorites. Give it a try if you like.
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 stick butter softened (You can also use coconut oil, or half butter and half coconut oil.)
3/4 cup sugar (You can also use coconut palm sugar.)
1-1/2 cups unbleached flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1/2 cup ground flax seed
3 large ripened bananas, mashed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-12 oz. bag chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (You can also use almonds or pecans.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tins, or line pan with cupcake liners. Cream butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Fold in the mashed bananas, vanilla, chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour the mixture into the prepared muffin tins. Bake muffins for approximately 18 minutes.
Makes 18-24 muffins.
