Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
By Sue & John Nightingale


1 cups all purpose whole wheat flour
cup granulated Sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup mashed banana ( use 3-4 bananas )
cup melted butter or marg
cup semi-sweet chocolate chips - or more if you like
cup (optional) chopped nuts, any kind - pecans, almonds


- In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Beat together egg, banana, melted butter, and choc chips and nuts.
- Add wet mixture to dry ingredients; stir just until moistened.
- Fill lightly greased or paper-lined muffin tin ( makes 12 regular size or 6 large muffins)
- Bake at 375 20 to 25 minutes or until top springs back, or sharp knife test.


- Put unused bananas in the freezer and keep until you want to bake.
- Take out and thaw or use microwave on auto defrost.
- Using frozen bananas, saves lots of time - no mashing required.
- For 24 muffins, double this up.
