Strawberry Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

The Muffin/Bread Man has been around quite a bit lately. I don't mind, he leaves me with some yummy carbs that everyone enjoys! I happen to know that he'll be sticking around too.
I used a basic anything-goes-muffin base, and then tossed in a diced banana, mashed strawberries and chocolate chips. I changed it up a little from the original recipe, and these turned out fabulous! Who doesn't love strawberry-banana, chocolate & strawberries, or chocolate & bananas flavors? You get them all in these! This recipe gave me 12 regular muffins and 1 mini loaf.

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 banana, diced
3/4 cup mashed strawberries
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400'.
Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugars in a large bowl. In a small bowl beat egg with a fork. Stir in milk and oil. Pour all at once into the the flour mixture. Mix quickly and lightly with a fork until moistened, but do not over beat. The batter will be lumpy. Gently fold in the fruits and chocolate chips. Pour the batter into paper lined muffin pan cups. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden.

Pin It!

Hello Annymous, Yes you can use granulated sugar in place of the brown sugar, so 3/4 cup for total sugar in the recipe. :)
