Mini Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chips or Reese’s Pieces or BOTH!

How in the world is it a month until Christmas??? Wasn’t it just July?

Man, time sure seems to be going faster and faster the last couple years.

But on a high note I made you muffins! They are tiny and cute and totally delicious!

They would make a great Christmas morning snack, they are so small you can just pop them in your mouth and keep opening presents!

What you need,

¼ cup butter

½ cup granulated sugar

1 egg

½ cup mashed banana

2 ½ tbsp. buttermilk

½ tsp. vanilla

1 cup flour

¾ tsp. baking powder

¾ tsp baking soda

1 cup mini chocolate chips, or mini Reese’s Pieces or ½ cup of each!

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray or you could use cute mini paper liners!

In a bowl cream together, the butter and sugar. Add the egg and combine well. Stir in the banana, buttermilk and vanilla.

Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda and fold to combine. Don’t over mix here, you don’t want tough muffins.

One final fold in of the mini chips and that is the batter.

Scoop into the prepared pan and bake 12-15 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container for 3 days or you can freeze them for later.

These little muffins are a delight! They are so tasty, and the tiny bit of peanut butter you get from the Reese’s Pieces is a real treat!

I do have a couple holiday recipes coming up in the next couple weeks for you. I sure do love this time of year.

I so wish I could just stay home and bake and watch Christmas movies all day but sadly, work…

Have a great week!
