ABC Muffins

A is for Apple
B is for Banana

These ABC muffins are quick to make, yummy, and a great way to sneak some fruit into your kids' breakfast. My youngest daughter plowed through her first muffin, and as she licked the melty chocolate off her fingers, she asked, "What's in them?"
"Apples and bananas," I confessed.
"And chocolate," she reminded me.
"Yes, and chocolate."
"Maybe you shouldn't tell the others about the apples and bananas," she said. "They probably won't notice."
Very wise, young one.

This recipe makes 12 muffins.

1 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. ripe smashed bananas (2-3 bananas)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
1 apple, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350-degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl or large measuring cup, combine all the other ingredients. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line it with paper liners. Pour batter 2/3 full into muffin cups. Bake about 20-25 minutes or until browned.
