I spied a few sad browning bananas on the counter, so I decided to have a little baking fun. I made two different recipes; chocolate banana bread and blueberry banana muffins. I may have gone a little crazy, but luckily I have an awesome neighbor whose family loves to taste test my creations 😉

BLUEBERRY BANANA MUFFINS

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tsp sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ripe mashed banana
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

Preparation

Heat oven to 375°. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or use non-stick cooking spray. Whisk butter, eggs and milk in a bowl. Combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in another bowl. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients; fold in blueberries. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups; sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp sugar. Bake until muffins are golden brown and a knife comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. I always say let them sit and cool, but really the girls and I will eat one fresh out of the oven and risk burning our tongues 😉

CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD

Ingredients

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
1/3 cup 2% or whole milk 1 tbs vanilla
2 ripe bananas
1/2 bag chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Prepare a loaf pan with non-stick spray

In a medium bowl, combine your dry ingredients

In a large bowl, combine your wet ingredients

Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix by hand just until combined.

Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick or cake-tester comes out clean
