Monkey Muffins

Monkey MuffinsBananas and chocolate chips–what more do you want from a breakfast?  I mean, really?  They’re everything you could want to start they day: a happy little marriage of muffin and cupcake…like muffin-cakes…or cu-ffins.

While I can’t personally attest to their flavor (they’re not vegan), I can tell you that my devoted, loyal piggies absolutely raved about them.  And even better, my little house stunk like an absolute dream for two days after baking these–so score.

2 c Flour
3/4 c Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 c Milk
1/3 c Canola Oil
1 c Mashed Ripe Bananas
1 c Mini Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 400.  Prepare your muffin pans by inserting some o’ them high-class, newfangled fancy-pants paper liners, then set aside.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.  In a medium bowl, combine the egg, vanilla, milk, oil, and bananas.  Add these combined wet ingredients to the flour mixture, stirring just until well-incorporated.  Stir in the chocolate chips, just until incorporated.  If you’re feeling a little crazy (read: nuts–har, har…), add some chopped peanuts too.  Yum…peanuts.

Plop that gloppy batter into your prepared muffin cups and bake them in your toasty oven for about 20 minutes…until they’re lightly browned and the pass the famous toothpick test.

Yield: About 18 Muffins
