Banana Nut Muffins with Chocolate Chips

I prefer not to use baking recipes that use oil, but this recipe is an exception (and so says everyone who has had this particular recipe!). This cookbook, The Muffin Lady: Muffins, Cupcakes, and Quickbreads for the Happy Soul, is a breakfast baking staple in our household and I highly recommend it. Makes for a great gift for anyone you know who loves baking!

2-3 ripe bananas
1 cup oil
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp mace
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts
chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the bananas in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until pureed or mashed. Add the oil and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time. Sift the remaining dry ingredients and gradually add. Add the vanilla. Fold in the nuts. Bake in a parchment paper-lined 12 unit muffin pan for 30-34 minutes

Optional: Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top of each muffin before baking.
