Ever since my friend Starr mentioned making Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Alex has wanted me to make them. I acquiesced and found a recipe for Banana-Nut-Chocolate Chip Bread that had muffin directions.
I actually used all of my vegetable oil over the weekend with my frying adventures, so I used a little olive oil in these instead, and this wasn’t a problem. I was surprised that these took diced bananas rather than mashed. Dicing the bananas was easy, though – you just quarter the banana lengthwise with the peel still attached, and cut the bananas into the appropriate size dice. I liked this because then you could pick up the peel and just slide the bananas off into the bowl. I think that the two cups was about 3 smallish bananas.
These were fine. We both liked them. I wasn’t particularly in the mood for banana muffins, so I’m not the best judge. At times I liked the diced banana – at other times I didn’t. Will I make them again? Probably not until Alex asks for them again.
