Banana Chocolate Chip Pecan Muffins

Banana Chocolate Chip Pecan Muffins

I created this muffin specifically for my 16 year old, whom cringe at the sight of bananas. Making him “Yuck” face number 2 (If you recall my Simple Pico de Gallo blog post, I’m “Yuck” face number 1)! ”Yuck” face number 2 has recently had the epiphany that he needed to increase his potassium and protein intake in which he concluded he need to eat more bananas (I have been stating this for about 5 years now…better late then never!). For those who are wondering what made him come to this wonderful epiphany…well it’s simple 16 Years old+FOOTBALL PLAYER (JOCK)=Girls! My son is one of the skinniest, but one of the fastest players on his team. He often gets a little weak after the first half of the game which has effected his perform. He wants to perform better on the field to look good in front of the ladies….16 year old boy’s priorities…I swear…! Agreeing with the need for bananas in my son’s diet minus the girl hunt, I attempted to create a banana recipe that wouldn’t make him green in the face after eating. After three tries, I was able to finally come up with a recipe that he actually enjoyed versus tolerated.

This recipe contains white whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, unsalted butter, sugar, salt, milk, vanilla extract, eggs, bananas, pecans, chocolate (semi-sweet, chips)
