Black Banana Syndrome

This is the time of year when bananas tend to go all spotty instantly - Banana Muffins to the rescue!
Extra Moist Banana Muffins
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 cups mashed bananas (about 4 to 6 bananas)
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
handful chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease a 12-muffin tin with butter and set aside.

Whisk the flour, baking soda, brown sugar, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.

Whisk the banana, oil, milk, eggs, and vanilla in a large measuring cup with a spout.

Make a small well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the center; then stir with a wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are moistened but still lumpy. Do not overmix the batter or your muffins will come out dense. Gently stir in the chocolate chips. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin tin.

Bake 25 minutes or until golden. Turn muffins out onto a rack or plate to cool a little, or your mouth will be burned with molten chocolate chips.

Just what I was looking for-the bananas have started doing an extra freaky Carmen Miranda meets the Night of the living Dead dance routine on the counter. (Cha Cha Ulp)Thanks!!!

What I'd give for a banana right now. Pretty much no-one in Australia has eaten a banana for months and months and months, since most of the banana crops were wiped out by a cyclone. Bananas from the remaining crops go for about $13 per kilogram. So enjoy your bananas while you've got them. :)

Hey is this Barbara's recipe?
I confess to using a WHOLE bag of chocolate chips! The batters only purpose is to hold all of those delicious chips together.
