Muffins with Chocolate Chips and Bananas

It's September school holiday again! Connie and I did a 'project' today. We baked muffins with chocolate chips and mashed bananas. Really yummy as it is not too sweet.

1) 1½ cup flour
2) ½ cup sugar
3) 2 teaspoons baking powder
4) 1/2 teaspoon salt
5) 1 cup milk (or other liquid, such as drained pineapple juice, orange juice, etc)
6) 1/4 cup oil
7) 1 egg
8) 1½ cup fruit (or vegetable, such as 1 cup mashed bananas and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts)
You can spice your choice :)

1) Heat oven to 400F/ 200C.
2) Grease 12 muffin cups, or 24 mini muffin cups.
3) Combine dry ingredients, including dry additions (like nuts, chocolate chips, etc.) and spices.
4) Combine wet ingredients, including wet additions (like banana, berries, pineapple, etc).
5) Spoon batter into muffin cups, filing about 2/3 full (perfectly ok if you have leftover batter to fill cups to top).
6) Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Note: Instead of milk, you can also use other liquids, such as drained pineapple juice, orange juice, etc.
