This month I was assigned the Kitchen Witch. Rhonda a.k.a. Giggles, a middle-aged blogger, culinarian, photographer and avid motorcycle rider. Drop by and give her blog a look, you'll find beautiful photographs and delicious recipes!
After making my way through Rhonda's recipes, I settled on Banana, Chocolate Chip, Granola Muffins. No granola in the pantry? No problem, I used coconut and quick oats. I found these to be done after 15 minutes. I always set the timer on muffins for less time than the recipe calls for because muffins tend to be dry when overcooked!
Banana, Chocolate Chip, Granola Muffins
- 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tbs. all purpose flour, divided
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 or 3 bananas)
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/3 plus 2 tbs. butter, melted and divided
- 1 1/2 cups granola, divided
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tbsp. flour, cinnamon and melted butter. Then stir in 1/2 cup granola. Sprinkle topping over muffins and gently press into batter.
Bake in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of muffin comes out clean.
