- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 mashed ripe banana
- 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 18 muffin cups with muffin liners. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Mix mashed banana, applesauce, egg, melted butter and milk in medium bowl. Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips, reserving some for sprinkling on top.
Divide batter among prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Sprinkle a few chips on top of each muffin. Bake muffins until tops are golden and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Transfer muffins to rack; cool. ENJOY!
