Banana Muffins with Chocolate chips

20130117-224735.jpg

So here is the second half of Wednesday night baking with Lindsey. While she was making donut “poops” I made Texas Sheet Cake and this banana bread (which I made as muffins with chocolate chips. Both recipes were handed down from my Grandma Gile.)

These are great for weekend breakfast or snack. (Much healthier without the Chocolate chips though, obviously)

• Add 3/4 C. Sugar, 1/2 C. Oil, and 2 Eggs and mix until frothy.

• Add 1 C. Mashed Bananas, 1 tsp. Vanilla, 1 tsp Cinnamon, & 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg and mix really well (it will be more frothy now).

• Bake @ 350 for 16-22 minutes (depending on the size of your muffins) or you can always make it a loaf.

After making the pumpkin purée from our garden sugar pumpkins here what we baked! We also had a Costco sized container of beautiful blueberries, my roommate loves them. So Lindsey and I set to baking! (Check out her site! )

Once the batter was scooped and topped with as much streusel as possible it was time to bake and enjoy!
