Banana & Chocolate Chip Muffins

This Saturday morning my daughter, Shelby and I decided we needed to make something yummy for breakfast. I saw the bananas on the counter gathering spots and I suggested we make muffins. She was a little hesitant until I added that we could put chocolate chips in them, then she was totally on board.

So we put on our special matching aprons that Grandma made for us, 
cause you have to look cute when you are in the kitchen of course.

We got out our tiaras, cause you have to wear a tiara when you're baking, duh. 
And Shelby got out her pig spatula - it's way I right?

Then lastly, we pulled up our "cooking tunes" playlist on my computer  
cause your goodies always turn out better 
when you can shake your hiney while you are baking.

Now to begin, pulling out everything you need is very important. 


1 stick of butter, softened (or 1/2 c. butter)
3/4 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream 
3 bananas
2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla 
6 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate morsels
paper muffin cups


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and sugar with a mixer. 

Add eggs and mix thoroughly.

Dissolve baking soda in the sour cream. 
Let it "rise" before adding it to the butter, sugar and egg mixture. 

Mix well on medium speed.
Add bananas. Mix. It's ok, actually preferable, if there are chunks of banana.

Add flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together, mix in thoroughly. 
Add vanilla. Then stir in your chocolate chips by hand. 
Line muffin pans with paper liners and fill your muffin cups. 
Bake 20 minutes.
Recipe makes approximately 18-20 muffins.

Now, make yourself a cup of your favorite coffee, mine is Dark Magic by Green Mountain
and enjoy! ♥
