This Banana muffins recipe calls for the use of a sourdough starter and chocolate chips. Yes, it's as delicious as it sounds.
1 cup sourdough starter
1 cup banana
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 medium egg
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons sugar, for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line muffin tins with paper muffin cups and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sourdough starter, mashed bananas, sugar, olive oil, and egg until the mixture is smooth.
In a a separate bowl whisk together the white whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and fold together with a spatula until the dry ingredients are just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Fill the prepared muffin tins with about 1/4 cup of the batter in each muffin cup.
Sprinkle raw sugar on top of the batter. Bake the muffins for 18 - 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean (or with a few wet crumbs).
Cool the muffins in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
