How to make mini banana muffins

Step 1: In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: salt, flour, and baking soda. Set aside.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and pure maple syrup.

Step 3: Add  the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. Do not over mix.

Step 4: If you do not want chocolate chips in your muffins, you can skip this step. What I did was to make half and half. I added half of the batter to the mini muffin tin, then folded chocolate chips into the remaining half of the batter.

Step 5: Grease the mini muffin tin, then fill evenly with the mini muffin batter.

Step 6: bake the banana bread mini muffins at 350 degrees for 11-14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow the muffins to cool 2-3 minutes in the pan, then use a butter knife to gently remove them from the pan and onto a wire cooling rack.
