The BEST Banana Muffins

We go through bananas like crazy...from smoothies, to cereal, smeared with peanut butter, or just plain!
This week, I had a few bananas that were past the "sliced over cereal" stage....and almost past the "blend into smoothies" stage.  I decided to whip up some banana muffins, and I just HAD to share the recipe!  These were SO good y'all. I make banana bread a lot, and I like to use different recipes to find my favorite...and this might be it.  Moist, flavorful, and filled with ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge/pantry.  

Try them out the next time you have some black ripe bananas, and are in the baking mood!

Amazingly Easy (& Delicious) Banana Muffins 
Adapted from: Cat Can Cook
Makes 12 muffins

4 large, ripe bananas, mashed 

1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour
*chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the mashed bananas, sugar, egg and butter together in a small bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.  Pour into greased muffin tins, and bake in preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes. 
**I added chocolate chips to half the batch, so yummy!!**

Cook's Notes:

These are much more flavorful the next day, and they freeze very nicely too!
