Banana Bread Muffins:

This is my grandma's recipe and I always think of her when I make it! The chocolate chips were something we added to the original recipe later on, but I'm sure that grandma would have approved 100%!!!! They are really easy and delicious! You could make it in a loaf pan, if you wanted, but we prefer to make most bread items in muffin tins. This is another thing from grandma! She used to make muffins all the time! It's good too, because it totally ensures that the center gets done without the outside burning! Hope you like the recipe!


4 large ripe bananas
2 eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup honey (or 1 cup sugar)
2 cups flour
2 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4-1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional
1 cup chocolate chips, optional

In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add eggs, oil and honey (or sugar). Mix together well. Add flour, xanthan gum, soda and salt. Mix just until everything is moist. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Fill paper muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve or remove from muffin tin and place on a clean dish towel. Cover with another towel. Place in an airtight container, when completely cooled, and store in the refrigerator.

Note:
-You can mix the nuts in the batter, or you can sprinkle them on top. My sister has braces, so she can't eat nuts right now, so I sprinkle them on top of half the muffins, use my fingers to stick them to the batter and them bake them!
