Banana Chocolate Chip Corn Muffins

Labor Day Weekend is upon us and I don't know about you- but I'm still living in June- so I'm not sure how this has happened. But it's here and I'm not complaining because it's still 85 out! 

These long weekends are for doing absolutely nothing or everything you can- as long as it is spent with people you love and food you can spoil yourself with. Long weekends are not for counting calories. So wake up this weekend and make these yummy muffins. They make the house smell amazing and everyone will love them. Especially if you griddle them with butter. Oh my! 

Banana Chocolate Chip Corn Muffins 

2 eggs 
1 1/2 tbs milk or sour cream 

2 large overripe bananas, mushed 

3/4 cup ap flour 
1 cup cornmeal 
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar 
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1 1/4 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt
1/2-3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips 
Canola spray or butter to grease tray

Muffin tray 
Large mixing bowl 
Small mixing bowl 
Baking spatula 
Measuring cups/spoons 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking trays with oil or grease with butter. 

In large bowl add flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, and both sugars. Mix together well. 

In small bowl add mushed bananas, eggs, milk, vanilla extract and oil. Mix well. Pour this liquid bowl into the large dry ingredient bowl. Mix until just combined and add chocolate chips. I used closer to 1/2 a cup but use as little or as much as you like. 

Pour batter into muffin trays- filling 3/4 of the way up. Place tray into the oven and bake for 22-25 minutes. I checked on mine starting at 18 minute mark. You just want the edges to be golden brown and the tops be firm but spongy to the touch. 
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5-10 before inhaling them. 

These make a great breakfast/brunch/snack option and they're also good to have around the house for when you're on the go. Try splitting them in half and buttering each side and then reheating it on a cast iron pan or griddle. So delicious!! Enjoy! Xo
