banana chip muffins

strange as it may be, this brand of multicoloured muffin papers reminds me (always) of my mom’s banana chip muffins.   they were such favourites that my brother (devin)  sometimes asks for them as a birthday present.

i bought them yesterday, and as i filled a muffin tin with the papers, memories of being small and pulling the papers off the muffins & enjoying them flooded through my mind.  it was like my self was split between the current-arinn-baking and the child-arinn-eating.  i didn’t know which self to pay attention to, past or present.  it was a bit like time travel…

here are the memory-muffins; the recipe is taken directly from an email my mom sent<3.  obviously, the original recipe is not vegan, but it’s easy to veganise.  you can use an egg replacer (or perhaps omit the egg altogether; the bananas should bind very well) and “milk” of your choice.

Banana Chip Muffins
Flour       1 3/4 cups
Sugar      1/2   cup
Baking Powder  3 tsp
Salt            1/2 tsp
Choco Chips  1/2 cup

Have fun these are Devin’s favorite and so very easy
