Recipe: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Very good banana bread/muffins enhanced by the addition of chocolate bits - well isn't everything? Recipe can be doubled. Bread freezes well. Great way to use up those old bananas - I save them in the refrigerator. Kathy's original recipe said "the blacker the better" and I have made use of some very black bananas.
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
(printable recipe)
Ingredients:
1/2 cup shortening ( 1 stick butter)
1 3/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate bits (optional)
1 cup mashed bananas (2-3) The older the bananas, the better

Directions:
Cream shortening and sugar in mixer. Add eggs. Add lemon juice to mashed bananas and stir into creamed mixture. Sift together dry ingredients. (I stir with a whisk) Add with nuts and chocolate bits to first mixture. Pour into well greased loaf pan or muffin tins which have been dusted with flour and bake at 325' for 1 hour or until done. About 30 mins. for muffins.

Note: Using an ice cream scoop to dole out the batter makes for a uniform batch of muffins. You can also sprinkle sugar on top of the muffins or loaf before baking.

Doubled makes 12 extra large muffins or 24 small muffins
