Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins



2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup butter
1/2 Cup sour cream
3/4 Cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. Allspice
1/2 Cup toasted chopped pecans
3/4 Cup chocolate chips
4 mashed overripe bananas

Preheat oven to 325'. Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan or use lined muffins tins.
In a large bowl, combine and sift flour, baking soda, salt and allspice. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs, sour cream, vanilla and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Stir in nuts, and chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes (for bread loaf) and 25 minutes for muffins, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

~My side note:
I found this recipe here and changed it up by adding in some more goodness. To keep the nuts and chocolate chips from sinking into the batter while baking, toss them in a little flour before adding to the batter. This recipe gave me 18 muffins.

Hi Rachelle-
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and let us know a little bit more about you. I'm glad I found your blog too.
These muffins look great and your little one... reminds me of my 20 month old soon always trying to open the oven door while I'm baking!
