Monday Muffins

What to do with the few overly ripe bananas sitting on the kitchen counter earlier this morning — make muffins, of course.

Adding dark chocolate makes them healthy (right?). And, if that's not so, please don't tell us as we did enjoy these "treats".

This was the first time I used Bisquick™ in a muffin mix (really). While we enjoyed the results, next time it's back to the basic flour and baking powder method for me. 

WHY? The muffins were lighter and "flakier" Grenville's analysis and that made spreading butter a bit harder, unless it was (very) pre-softened. I used an oversize muffin tin (labeled Texas size) and this recipe made 6 muffins.

Chocolate Chip-Banana Muffins
Prep time: 12 min; Total time 30 min
  • 1 egg
  • 2 C original Bisquick mix
  • 2-3 medium very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 C sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 TBSP vegetable oil
  • 1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Heat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups or grease bottoms only of muffin cups.
  3. Beat egg slightly in medium bowl; stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  4. Bake about 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. 
Enjoy on a lazy weekday (or weekend) morning with a second cup of coffee — and to make it a healthy start, add some fresh fruit topped with Greek-style vanilla yogurt.

I wonder how much baking soda you would use, if you used 2 cups of plain flour instead? I was thinking 1 teaspoon?

I'm not sure on that measurement, Gill, but would just follow whatever the recipe called for vs. using Bisquick.

If I were to substitute Carbquik for the Bisquick and use Splenda instead of sugar I could make some very good low carb banana muffins. My son is diabetic so we try to follow a low carb diet. Of course I would either have to use no chocolate chips or the sugar free if I wanted the chocolate. They look good and I am going to try them.
