Banana treats

Recipe#2: banana and chocolate chip muffins


“If you truly love a book, you should sleep with it, write in it, read aloud from it, and fill it with muffin crumbs.”  (Anne Fadiman)


230 gr (1 ¾ cups) all-purpose flour

100 gr (½ cup) granulated sugar

60 gr ( ¼ cup) brown sugar

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

a pinch of salt

80 gr (½ – ¾ cup) chocolate chunks (white / milk / dark chocolate – whatever you love most)

3 ripe bananas

120 gr (½ cup) butter

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 180° (350 F). In a bowl combine all of the dry ingredients – flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chocolate chunks. In another bowl combine all of the wet ingredients – mashed bananas, melted butter, eggs and vanilla. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ones. Combine well but be careful not to overmix the batter. Bake at 180° (350 F) for about 20 minutes. Remove the muffins from the oven, cover them and let them cool.
