Yesterday morning I decided that I should make the kids muffins for breakfast, with fresh squeezed OJ. The muffins were a big hit, especially with this little guy. The OJ, not so much. The girls aren't used to pulp, but WOW the taste just can't be beat.
By the time I got the camera he had snagged himself another muffin.
I can't blame him really. They were oh-so-yummy.
If you like seeing big smiles on their faces, you might want to make them too.
I found the recipe at All Recipes, but made the changes one reviewer suggested, so here is what I did.
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 C Flour (I used half whole wheat and half regular)
1/3 C + 3 Tb Sugar
4 Tb Cocoa Powder
1 Tb Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla
1 C Mashed Bananas (about 3 reg)
2/3 C Oil
2 Eggs, beaten
1/2 C milk
1 C Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking powder. In another bowl, blend the bananas, oil, vanilla and eggs together. Add to dry ingredients, mixing just until blended. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon the batter into a greased muffin pan, filling three-fourths full. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.
*These would be great even without the chocolate chips, or with white chocolate chips instead.
