  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 357 degrees Fahrenheit. Line muffin tray with paper liners. 

  1. Mix together all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

  3. Add flour mixture gradually to egg/milk mixture until well mixed.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.

Illustrated Step-by-Step Instructions:

3. Mix your dry ingredients well with a whisk.

6. Add 1/3 cup oil, 1 tsp vanilla. 

7. Voila! Your wet ingredients, appetizing isn't it? Mix these well together. 

8. These are the baking chocolate chips I used (thank you No Frills!) which I clipped with one of those dollar store chip closing clips. Super handy for all of my baking ingredients.
