BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS and BANANA BREAD

It seems we have had a lot of ripe bananas in the house lately.
My kids had friends to play, and I threw the muffins together so they would have something to snack on, and the banana bread was a lovely Saturday morning treat.

BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS


1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
2 ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup milk
5 tablespoons melted butter
1 egg

Heat oven to 400F.
Fit 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
Mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and chocolate chips in a large bowl.
Stir in bananas, milk, butter and egg. Mix until just blended.
Fill muffin cups evenly with batter.
Bake muffins until a skewer inserted into centers comes out clean, 14 to 16 minutes.
Cool one minute, then remove from the muffin pan and cool on a wire rack.
Enjoy!
