Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins


I went looking for a muffin recipe to make on AllRecipes. I know I can always go there and see what people's feedback on recipes are. I really enjoy that. So I went with this one and made some changes. You can find the original recipe here.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup of applesauce (unsweetened)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 ripe bananas
4 tablespoons instant coffee granules, dissolved in 3 tablespoons hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Milk chocolate chips
milk, if needed

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Blend butter or margarine, sugar, egg, banana, dissolved coffee, and vanilla with a hand mixer for 2 minutes. Add flour, salt, baking powder, and soda, and blend just until flour disappears. At this point I had to add about 1/4 cup or so of milk. Toss chocolate chips with a little flour to help prevent sinking. Add chocolate chips and mix in with wooden spoon. Spoon mixture into paper-lined muffin cups.
3. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

This made 24 muffins. They are really good! They're so moist! I know the kids will like them but with all of the coffee I'm not sure how good an idea that is! I highly recommend you make these soon!

Happy Eating!
