I was 15 years old when I failed in baking for the first time. That was my first attempt at baking. I almost cried. After that, I thought… baking is not really for me. Last year, April 2012, I was searching something on YouTube and found Laura Vitale of Laura in the Kitchen. I watched one of her videos on how to make Chocolate Cupcakes. I find her really amazing and I really enjoyed watching her. So I searched and searched until I found Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins and I said “Wow! I would like to try baking again.” Because banana is my second favorite fruit (Mango is my first), I gave it a try and I was so happy (that I jumped and jumped… yeah, I jumped like I won in a lottery) because it was a complete success and the muffins were really good. I make these muffins all the time. Thanks to Laura who is really an inspiration in my baking adventures.
I just removed the chocolate chips in the recipe to make my Banana Muffins. Sometimes, I just love it without the chocolate chips.
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup sugar
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- Preheat your oven to 400 F. Line a 12 piece muffin tin with muffin liners and set aside.
- In a large bowl, add the first 5 ingredients and mix until all combined.
- In another bowl, add the rest of the ingredients. Then add it to your wet ingredients.
- Using a large ice cream scoop (or tablespoon) divide the batter into your muffin pan and bake for about 18 minutes.

I’d love to serve mine with hot coffee. I also serve it with pancake syrup and butter. 😀
