Sitting beside my second son this morning, each of us snacking on fresh-from-the-oven hot and tasty muffins, I realized that everyone needs to try this recipe.
The recipe for these muffins is originally found in Muffins & More, by Jean Pare, titled simply Banana Bran Muffins. I've modified it, of course, to suit my family and my picky children. I hope you enjoy them.
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. All Bran Cereal (original)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. cocoa
1/4 c. butter or margarine
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 beaten eggs
1/4 c. sour milk
2-3 pureed bananas (2 makes a little drier than 3)
1/2 c. chocolate chips
Mix dry ingredients, and set aside.
Beat sugar with butter. Add beaten eggs, milk, and bananas. Mix well.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients, and gently mix until combined. Add and gently mix in chocolate chips. Spoon into a greased or lined muffin tin.
Bake at 400*F for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool a few minutes before attempting to eat! Makes 12.
