I love to bake! When I was a kid, my mom often involved me in the baking process. Muffins were one of the first things she taught me to make because they are usually pretty fool proof. They don’t involve lots of fancy steps, and can be done with simple tools – bowls, measuring cups, and spoons.
This recipe is one I use often (almost weekly!). It’s based on an old recipe my mom saved off a Robin Hood flour bag. The original recipe called for whole wheat flour, which I almost never have on hand, so I swapped in ground flax seed and quick oats.
I usually stir in chocolate chips (and often don’t measure them). If chocolate chips don’t work for you, you can always stir in an alternative. Try chopped nuts, dried cranberries, or omit them completely and make plain banana muffins. I’ve made these with milk chocolate chunks and chopped walnuts and they turned out amazing!
Tested and true, I hope this muffin recipe becomes a staple for your family too.
