Mmmm... Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins. A favorite in our house- when Brenna allows the bananas to ripen enough. You know you want one...

This is a classic recipe- slightly altered- from the Good Housekeeping Cookbook. Makes 18 regular size muffins, 6 jumbo muffins or 6 mini loaves.

2 1/2 c all-purpose flour
3/4 c sugar
1 T baking powder
3/4 t salt
6 T butter
1 c chocolate chips (the original recipe calls for walnuts)
3 small, ripe bananas, cut up
2 eggs
1/3 c milk
1/2 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease pan or use muffin cups.

In large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. With pastry blender or two knives used scissor fashion, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; stir in chocolate chips, set aside.

In blender at high speed or in food processor with knife blade attachment blend bananas, eggs, milk and vanilla only a few seconds, until bananas are chopped.

Stir banana mixture into flour mixture until flour is moistened. Batter will be lumpy.

Spoon into muffin cups, bake 25-30 minutes until golden and inserted toothpick comes out clean.
