Some Favorite Muffins

Muffins are one of the best early morning foods around. They are a perfect way to kick off a day. My family and I have always enjoyed these muffins...with a glass of cold milk they are so good! Try them, you won't be dissapointed!
"Double Chocolate Banana Muffins"

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/3 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients, (all dry ingredients). In a small bowl, mash ripe bananas. Add oil and egg. Stir into dry ingreidents until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes. Makes 1-1/2 dozen.
**I made jumbo sized muffins - exactly one dozen**
