Banana Spiced Chocolate Chip Muffins

All I can say is about this recipe is YUM! You must try these :)
Perfect with your morning coffee and the kids will love these for breakfast or a hidden surprise in their lunch!

makes approximately 2 dozen

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
3 medium ripe bananas (mashed)
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup of whipped topping (optional)
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 F.

In large bowl beat together sugar and oil. Add eggs, bananas, vanilla, and whipped topping and mix well.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Add flour mixture to the banana mixture, then add milk
Stir only until combined, batter may be lumpy.

Fold in chopped pecans and chocolate chips. Pour batter into a lined muffin pan. Bake about 15-20 minutes or
until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.
Then remove muffins from pan and
place them on a cooling rack to cool completely.

* I add homemade whipped topping when I have it available.

Recipe for Whipped Topping:

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup of powder sugar sifted

Chill your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Then in a large metal bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Enjoy on top of coffee, cupcakes, pancakes, fruit, or waffles.
The possibilities are endless!
