Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin

Are you ready to give yourself the most delicious treat ever? Because I have just discovered my new favorite muffin. And they are so easy to make as well! They are wonderfully moist and the perfect density. I ate 5 the first day (oops! ;)

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
4 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Lightly grease your muffin tins, or line with baking cups.

In a medium bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda.

In a large bowl, beat the sugar and the oil. Mash bananas well and add to sugar mixture with chocolate chips. Stir in the water and vanilla until incorporated. Add flour mixture a little at a time and stir until just incorporated.

Any excuse to use these lovelies 
Fill muffin cups evenly and bake about 20 minutes, until they are a light golden brown. The time depends on your oven and how much you fill the muffin cups. But a good rule of thumb with muffins and cupcakes is to stick a toothpick in the middle of the cupcakes/muffins and when ready the toothpick will come out cleanly.

Viola! This goes to show that anything is better with a little chocolate. ;)
Happy Baking!
