Chocolate Chip Banana Walnut Muffins

Chocolate Chip Banana Walnut Muffins
Yield: 24 Muffins

Blend together:
4 very ripe bananas
1/2 a container of vanilla yogurt (about 16 oz)
2 eggs
2 tbs vanilla extract
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
2 cups granulated sugar

Mix together:
3 cups of all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Chop up:
2 cups of walnuts
1 square of Ghirardelli chocolate

1 cup Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup Ghirardelli baking chips

I make the muffin batter in my Kitchen Aid Mixer and they are very easy to whip up in just a matter of minutes. I start by adding the bananas, then vanilla, oil, eggs, yogurt, and sugar. I let the paddle spin on medium creaming everything together. Then I add the dry mixture with the paddle spinning on the slowest setting. I add in the chocolate and nuts last and let the paddle do a few spins to mix in the nuts and chocolate in every bite.
Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes.
