Banana Chai Chocolate Chip Muffins~Get Your Muffin On

I can't stand wasting food so when I see any amount of bananas about to go bad on my kitchen counter.. it's time to get my muffin on. Kids love muffins and especially when there's a few chocolate chips involved.  They'll eat copious amounts if I let them.

Today was the day.  Four very ripe bananas.  A new recipe I wanted to try.  Banana Chai Chocolate Chip Muffins.

Here's what you need for success.....{full recipe below that you can print out}

Sift the flour, baking soda, brown and cinnamon together in a medium bowl and set aside.

Whisk the banana, oil, chai tea liquid, eggs, salt and vanilla in a bowl.

Mix the wet with the dry and add chocolate chips last.

Scoop in to muffin pan and bake.  SO good!  Not too sweet tasting, will go really well with a cup of java or tea..

Banana Chai Muffins

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cups smashed bananas {I used 4}
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup chai tea liquid
2 large eggs, room temp.
1/8 tsp fine salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line muffin pan with liners or use non-stick spray.

Whisk the flour, baking soda, brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside.

Whisk the banana, oil, chai tea, eggs, salt and vanilla in a bowl.

Make a small well in the flour mixture and pour the wet mixture in.  Stir with a wooden spoon until moistened but still lumpy.  If you over-mix, your muffs will come out dense.  Gently stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop batter in to muffin tin and bake at 375 for 20 minutes
