Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

These are simple muffins that I made from " The Joy of Vegan Baking" by Colleen Patrick Goudreau. I made almost no changes as the recipe was by default egg free and dairy free except the use of chocolate chips which were not vegan.I also halved the recipe and made exactly 6 muffins.

All Purpose Flour:1 cup
BakingSoda:3/4 tsp
Salt: 1/4 tsp

Sugar: 1/2 cup
CanolaOil:1/6 cup or 8 tsp

Bananas : 2 Mashed
Water: 2 tbsp + 1-2 tbsp if needed

Chocolate Chips: 1/2cup + more as per taste

Preheat the oven to 350F/180C.Lightly grease or line the muffin tins.

In a medium bowl,whisk together flour,soda and salt together.

In a large/wide bowl,beat together sugar and oil,then add the mashed bananas and mix well. Stir in the water and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add the flour mix and the chocolate chips and stir together to get  a thick yet pourable batter. If the batter is too thick,add  1-2 tbsp of water as needed. I had to add 1tbsp water.

Fill each tin halfway  or 3/4th and bake for 15-20 minutes or more until the tester inserted in the middle comes clean.Mine were done in 18th minute. The original recipe calls for 20 -30 minutes. Keep an eye after the 15th minute.

Take out and cool in the rack.

A simple and delicious snack.The choco banana combo is always hearty.The texture was almost same as the regular muffins.I felt a little heaviness as bananas were added. Could because I was expecting it.Anyway nice anytime snack it was.
