There’s something lovely about waking up in the morning to a nice warm chocolate chip muffin, isn’t there?

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F).
2. In a large bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
3. In another bowl, combine the egg, melted butter, milk, and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
4. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans.

Banana Muffins


I like making batches of food that can last you for a week. These muffins were enough to satisfy every morning (and they go great with an egg omelet).

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat muffin pans with non-stick spray, or use paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
2. Combine bananas, sugar, egg, and melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pans.
3. Bake in preheated oven. Bake mini muffins for 10 to 15 minutes, and large muffins for 25 to 30 minutes.
