Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This recipe comes to you at the request of my 3-year-old daughter. A few Saturdays ago she woke up and the first thing she said is "Momma, will you make me breakfast? Something with bananas? And chocolate?" I wonder where she gets that from?  These muffins certainly delivered. They were soft and fluffy, perfect amounts of banana and not too sweet to eat for breakfast. Definitely in my top 5 favorites for muffins.

1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 egg
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup plain yogurt or sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup mashed ripe bananas, about 3 bananas
¾ cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350°. Prepare 2 muffin pan cups with paper liners or grease lightly.

Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat together the egg, bananas, vegetable oil, yogurt (or sour cream), and vanilla extract.

Pour the flour mixture into the banana mixture and blend on low speed until just combined. Gently beat in the chocolate chips.

Scoop the batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then remove from the muffin pan.
