Creaming the butter and sugar
My apron, not so graciously photographed!
Now it would be mean of me to show you our wonderful muffins and not give you the recipe. Being the nice person that I am, here you go:
Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip muffins:
- 2 sticks butter, room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 large or 5 small bananas extra ripe (I throw mine in the freezer until I'm ready and then defrost)
- dash of salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 cups oatmeal, you can use more or less depending on your preference
- 1/2 to 3/4 bag of chocolate chips, I use ghiradelli dark, for this recipe
Preheat over to 350 F. Cream butter and sugar (by hand or in mixer), add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add bananas and mix until just combined. Add baking soda and salt, stir a few times to incorporate and add flour. Mix well. Add oatmeal, mix well. Add chocolate chips, stir until evenly distributed. Place heaping tablespoons into a greased muffin pan and bake about 19 minutes. Makes about 18.
