Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

Recipe From: Leslie Reber
When I was a teenager, my young women's leader made banana bread for us. I've changed the recipe to mini muffins with chocolate chips instead of nuts...much better! I usually double (or 1 1/2) the recipe depending on how many ripe bananas I have. Blake either takes them to work or I freeze the extras.

1 3/4 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar (I use half splenda)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup ripe bananas (mashed)
1/3 cup butter (I use half low fat)
2 tbsp milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (they melt better than regular sized)

In a mixing bowl combine 1 cup of the flour, all the sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Then add the mashed bananas, butter and milk. Mix on low speed until blended...then on high speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs and remaining flour. Beat until blended, then add chocolate chips. Use flour spray to grease pan. Bake at 350 for 13 minutes (mini muffins), 20-22 min (cupcake size), 60 minutes (loaf). Let cool on a wire rack.
