Miss Cindi's Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

A few weeks ago my Granny gave me a Guideposts magazine. I was a bit confused at first at why she would. The magazine is not my favorite. Sorry, but that's the truth. There are some nice stories, but it's basically fluff and sometimes worse than that.

My point is- I finally figured out why she gave it to me. It was for the recipe for some really yummy muffins. I know, I know, if there's no picture, nobody really wants to make them. BUT, I say- give it a try. My husband really likes them, and these are the only ones that we'll eat the leftovers. I don't know about you, but when we make those blueberry muffins from the box, we rarely will eat any that are left. They're good fresh out of the oven, but after that.... So, if you're in the mood to bake, get after it:) For supper tonight we had these and eggs. A good/cheap/easy meal!

Miss Cindi's Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup mashed bananas
1 cup (or less) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Stir sour cream and baking soda together. Set aside. Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, beating well. Beat in sour cream mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients. Don't over-mix. Spoon into greased muffin pans and bake for about 18 minutes. Let cool for a few seconds and then ENJOY! Yum:)
