Being a mother who treasures quiet in the morning, I was committed to having my home schooled children sleep in as late as I could decently allow. And while I loved having them awaken to the aroma of baked goods, I didn’t like taking the chance they would wake up too early from the noise of my mixer.
This is a recipe I tweaked so they could have piping hot muffins for breakfast, and at the same time slumber on in blissful quiet.
Hands-down favorite muffins in our family.
12 muffins ÷ 4 kids = 3 muffins each.
Never a crumb left over.
Ingredients and Directions:
½ cup melted butter
½ cup sugar
2 mashed bananas
1 t. vanilla
1 t. baking soda dissolved in 1 T. boiling water
1½ cups flour
1 t. baking powder
¼ t. salt
½ cup chocolate chips (or more if you are a lover of chocolate)
Preheat oven to 350º.
Stir sugar into melted butter. Add egg, bananas, vanilla, and baking soda/water mixture.
Stir in flour, baking powder and salt just until mixed.
Gently add in chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into 12 greased muffin cups. Bake for 17-18 minutes or until they are golden brown. These are best served with a glass of cold milk. Enjoy!
