Chocolate Chip Banana Spice Muffins

Banana Spice Muffins - 6

Sick of pumpkin yet? Truth be told, I’m not…I’m a pretty serious pumpkin lover and could probably eat it every day during the fall season. I wanted to take a little break from pumpkin though, which is where these muffins come in. They originally started out as simply “banana spice muffins” – I wanted banana muffins, but with a taste of fall – but because I love the combination of chocolate and banana so much, I couldn’t help myself and ended up adding in some chocolate chips. You can easily leave them out if you want; either way, these muffins are moist and fluffy, and perfect with your morning cup of coffee. Whip some up for breakfast this week!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, spices, and sugar.

In another medium bowl, combine the oil, egg, and milk. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients gradually until combined.

  5. The spices you added would really warm this banana muffin up. I love cardamom but have never thought to add it to my banana muffins. I think it would be excellent. As for the chocolate chips, well we all know that chocolate makes everything better.
