You can make these with the chocolate chips or without, both ways are great!

What You Need:

Muffins-
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
dash salt
3 bananas
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/3 applesauce
1/4 cup chocolate chips, optional

Topping-
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoon butter

What You Do:

Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl.

In a small bowl, thoroughly mash bananas with a fork or potato masher. Add sugar, egg, and applesauce. Mix well with electric blender.

Pour banana mixture into dry ingredients and mix with spoon until all is moist and blended.

Stir in chocolate chips at this time.

Grease or line a muffin tin and add muffin mixture. I use an ice cream scoop to measure the perfect amount into each muffin cup.

For the topping- Mix all dry ingredients well in small bowl. Cut in butter until the mixture is nice and crumbly.

Sprinkle some of the crumb topping on each muffin.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

Makes about 18 muffins.

These freeze wonderfully.
