Banana Bran Chocolate Chip Muffins - pinterest muffins!

I had some frozen bananas that I wanted to make muffins with, but wanted to add some bran to make them more breakfasty.  So I searched online and found a recipe on allrecipes.com.  And so that I didn't lose it I pinned it too.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat bran
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a muffin pan or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar together until fluffy. Add bananas, milk, vanilla and eggs; mix well. Stir in flour, bran, baking powder, soda and salt; blend just until moistened. Stir in walnuts. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool in the cups for 5 minutes, then remove muffins and place on a wire rack to cool completely.

I didn't use walnuts in mine, but substituted chocolate chips instead.

Although they were tasty and turned out pretty well, they were a little too greasy!

Next time I think I would use less butter than called for, but I would definitely make them again!
