Banana muffins with whole grains and chocolate chips.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ⅔ cup unrefined coconut palm sugar (or regular sugar)
  • 2 large, ripe, bananas mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ¼ tsp. coconut extract (optional)
  • ⅓ cup almond milk (or regular milk)
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup (4 oz) all purpose flour
  • 1 cup (4.25oz) white whole wheat or traditional whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 12 muffin cups with papers.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixer. Add in the banana and egg and beat well. Add in the milk and flavorings and mix until combined. The mixture may look a bit curdled.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients with a whisk. Add the combined dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined.
  4. By hand, stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin cups, they will be pretty full.
  6. Bake for 20-23 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let the muffins cool slightly. As soon as you can handle them, remove the muffins from the pan and place them on a rack to prevent them from getting soggy on the bottom.
Notes
If you have any left, these muffins will freeze very well.
