I made these for a potluck. Three people asked me for the recipe. Now you can be part of the three!
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
3 tbs butter
3 tbs oil
1/3 c buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 c flour
3/4 c baking soda
1/2 c cocoa powder
2 tbs butter
1/2 c milk chocolate chips (but you can use any kind)
Chocolate dipped banana chips and decorating sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all the first set of ingredients together (all the wet + sugar and salt). Mix in the flour and baking soda. Split the batter in half and add the cocoa powder, 2 tbs butter, and chocolate chips to 1 half. You might have to use a mixer because the cocoa powder gets clumpy. Fill muffin cups with half of each kind of batter. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Makes about 18 muffins.
Cream cheese frosting ingredients:
1 – 8oz pkg cream cheese
5 tbs butter
1 tbs sour cream
1 tsp vanilla (I used vanilla bean paste)
1 c powdered sugar
Beat all the above together with a mixer. Spread or pipe on the muffins after they've cooled. If you use a frosting bag, you might need extra frosting.
If you want, you can also put the banana chip decoration on top or sprinkle decorative sugar on top. ☺ Happy baking!
