Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

My friends and I just finished making a cookbook.  It's so pretty!  I love having new recipes to try.  This one is from my friend, Emily.  I'm always on the lookout for non-cereal breakfast items.  Muffins are my son's favorite food and when he saw that these had chocolate chips in them, he was pretty blown away.  I think he likes them because, as Jim Gaffigan put it: "There is no difference between a muffin and cake.  A muffin is a bald cupcake."

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 1/2 C all purpose flour (or 3/4 C white, 3/4 C wheat)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 large bananas, mashed
3/4 C sugar
1 egg
1/4 C butter, melted
1/2 C chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin pans with non-stick spray or use paper liners.  Sift together dry ingredients. Set aside.  Combine bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter in a large bowl.  Fold in flour mixture. Add chocolate chips. Scoop into muffin pans. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

Bald cupcakes - nice! One more way I will eat a banana, add "cake" and chocolate chips.
