Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

I noticed I had overly ripe bananas on the countertop and I needed to do something with them. Bananas do not last long in our house...usually, but for some reason we didn't eat them as fast this time. I had been planning to make banana bread for a few days but just never got to it yet.
I made a trip to Walmart this week for a quick trip and picked up some breakfast things also, including single serving, prepackaged mini muffins. During the week, the kids usually grab a "on the go" or "packaged item" for breakfast. It just works.
The boys help their self to what they want for breakfast and have no problem getting their own. Then I grab something for the baby. With only 6 packages in the box, they easily disappear fast!
I decided to use the bananas and make some mini muffins adding chocolate chips.

The Recipe:
Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
3 mashed bananas
3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips
Mix together shortening and sugar. Add eggs, milk, and mashed bananas. Add flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix well. Add chocolate chips. Fill spots in a mini muffin pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 14 minutes. Yields 4 dozen.
The best kind of baking bananas :)

This recipes yields around 4 dozen mini muffins. I put 2 dozen in the freezer and left out the other 2. The kids love them and I'm not spending more money on the prepackaged ones. My middle son said "They are gooder than the store ones!" :) Works for me!! :)

Enjoy and thanks for reading!
