Anna Banana Muffins

Don’t you hate when your banana’s go bad? Honestly, same because I’ve been making banana bread or banana muffins forever and I think I’ve gotten pretty good at it. In a perfect world I’d probably use butterscotch chips instead of chocolate, but really anything you have is going to be delicious. I’ve used regular chocolate chips, white chocolate, a chocolate bar cut up… I think you get the idea.

Anyway, this recipe is pretty straight forward and most of us have this stuff around the house already. Applesauce works as a great substitute for butter if you want to forgo it. You could also sub a vegan egg, but I’ve never tried that. I think this recipe comes out really well because it is more of a banana bread recipe and you pour them into the muffin tins. This creates a more dense, fuller muffin. I also found that if you run out of baking soda, you just times that by three and add baking powder. I did this last week and it turned out well. So for this recipe I used 4 tsp of baking powder instead of baking soda completely.

This recipe is easily doubled or tripled, I have often doubled and made 24 muffins easily. I’ve also used frozen bananas and included a few drops of the liquid. Obviously you should wait for the bananas to thaw before you take your mixer to them. These muffins are honestly super easy… I hope you enjoy!
