Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Got some bananas getting old?  Want a tasty way to use them that's easy on your diet?  Read on, friends.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 TBSP. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 c. mini chocolate chips
1 large egg
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. skim milk
2 large bananas
1 tsp. vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Place bananas in a bowl and mash.
3. In a separate bowl, measure and add dry ingredients (flour through chocolate chips).  Stir to mix.  Add egg, oil, milk, bananas, and vanilla.  Stir well to mix.
4.  Spray a mini-muffin pan with Baker's Pam and fill cups 2/3 full with batter.  Bake 9 to 10 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Repeat process until batter is gone.

Makes approx. 48 mini-muffins.

The best parts about this recipe are a) my kids love them and gobble them up and b) they are only 1 Weight Watchers point per muffin.  So, you can scale your serving size based on your points allowance.

Also, they're delicious.

You can certainly make this in a regular or even jumbo sized muffin tin, just bake them longer - keep checking to make sure you don't burn them.  I just like the mini ones because they're kid sized and they help me keep my portions under control.
