Since we found Ean is allergic to eggs I've been trying to modify some of our favorite recipes to accommodate him. For these muffins I took our favorite chocolate chip muffin recipe, that I've tweaked over the years, and removed the egg and added in the banana for a binder. I wasn't sure how they would turn out the first time, but fortunately all of us love them.
I find I am making these muffins several times a week now. I actually have a batch in right now and I can't wait until they are finished!!!
Here's the recipe:
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins (Egg-Free)
1 3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sucanat (or sugar)
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 small banana, mashed
1 cup rice milk (or cow milk)
1/4 cup butter, melted (or oil)
handful of chocolate chips (you can omit for plain banana muffins)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffin cups. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl. Mash banana in another bowl. Add milk to banana and mix well. Stir banana/milk mixture into dry ingredients alternating with melted butter. Add chocolate chips and stir lightly. Fill muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-22 minutes. Then find someone to enjoy them with you!!! Or four little someones!!!
