Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins

I got this muffin recipe from Jenna, a girl I talk to on my school curriculum. She makes these muffins for her siblings and I decided to make them for mine. My family LOVED them. So I thought, "why not show the world how to make these?" I hope you enjoy this easy, delicious recipe for breakfast, on-the-go meals, or just plain snacking! Happy baking!

For this recipe you'll need:
-1 cup butter, softened
-1 1/2 cups sugar
-4 eggs
-2 tsp. vanilla
-4 cups flour
-2 tsp. baking soda
-2 cups mashed bananas
-1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


 Step One: Put the butter, sugar, and vanilla in an electric mixer. Mix on medium speed until well combined.

 Step Two: Beat in eggs, one at a time. Make sure you mix this very well or you will have clumps of raw egg and that is just nasty.

 Step Three: Add the flour, baking soda, and bananas. You can do this gradually or just put it all in at once. Mix slowly on a medium speed at first. Mix until well until combined.

Step Five:

Serve while still warm so the chocolate chips are all melty.

I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as my family did!
