Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

MMMuffins!  You know those ugly black bananas in the freezer?  How can something so yucky looking taste so good?

Yield: 12 muffins
Bake time: 25-28 minutes*
Temperature: 350F


3 ripe bananas
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 egg
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
2 tbsp warm water
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F and line muffin pan with medium or large cups.  In a small bowl mash bananas and set aside.  In large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and egg until well blended.  Add banana.  Stir in vanilla and water.  Blend in flour, baking soda, salt.  Add chocolate chips and stir until all ingredients are well blended.  Bake for 25-28 minutes or until tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

*The muffin pan used is stoneware, so baking time may need to be adjusted.
