Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

There has to be some good in the world. Lately, it has been a challenge to see the silver lining. During times when I cannot tell up from down, I go into my place of peace – the kitchen. I was able to talk with the kids and here their sibling banter and smile knowing that we are doing okay. Our favorite things to eat are things that you can grab and go that tastes amazing. I love a handheld meal or snack. These Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins quelled my weary soul.

Gather the Ingredients and Supplies

Mise en place! Mise en place! Get your things set up and in order. It makes cooking so much easier. If you re the type of person who dreads cooking, take some time on the front end to gather the ingredients and supplies you need. Cooking and baking will be a breeze.

When baking, this is how the equation goes: mix dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients into another. Will the finished product taste the same if you do not separate the wet from the dry? Sometimes. I have eaten banana bread and bit into a big chunk of baking soda. Yuck. I was rushing and thought I could skip a few steps. Just a word to the wise, when baking follow the directions especially if you want the reward of an amazing treat. These Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins deserve the attention to detail.

What Type of Chocolate Chips Do I Use for Baking

There are three different types of chocolate chips that you can use for baking: dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, and milk chocolate. Which one you use ultimately is determined by what chocolate variety you would like to taste in your dessert. While milk chocolate is my favorite because it is deliciously sweet and creamy, it can sometimes be too sweet for some desserts. When adding lots of sugar to a dessert, semi-sweet chocolate chips have a higher cocoa content and are more bitter. Semi-sweet chocolate chips can balance the heaviness of the sugar in a dish.

Pair milk chocolate chips with flavors like peanut butter or caramel os salty items like pretzels. Semi-sweet chocolate chips can go with sweet desserts. Use Dark chocolate chips when you are content with having the chocolate flavor and no minimal sweetness.
