Banana Almond Chocolate Muffins

Lately, I've really been into muffins; I think I like them so much because they are so quick and easy to grab for breakfast or lunch on the go. They're also a nice little treat to take into work at the Housing Office. I think it's safe to say they appreciate them! :)

If you have any ripe bananas sitting around, this recipe is sure to please! :)

Banana Almond Chocolate Muffins

1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chopped almonds
2 Hershey's Bars, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly beat egg; add bananas and mash. Add the rest of the "wet" ingredients and mix well. Then, add dry ingredients but do not over-stir. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray to prevent them from sticking or use muffin liners. Bake 22-25 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in muffin pan and then place on cooling rack.
