Banana Muffins

Last friday, here in Brazil, was a holiday, and so i went to de countryside and... a lot of bananas came back whit me, and.. for my misfortune, all of theme wore ripe. So what to do with all of that??
I started looking for recepies, but nothing seemed to please me, i wanted something tasty and easy... when I suddenly found Banana Chocolate Chips Muffins. It was just perfect because bananas i had and i also had chocolate chips!!
And just to please a litle my mom i mad chocolate ganache, because i had chocolate and heavy cream that was alredy doom to the trash can.
The recipe is from Epicurus but i'll post it here whit some notes on the ingredients.

Banana Chocolate Chips Muffins

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 large egg
115g (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup milk - i used nonfat milk (didn't have the whole one)
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line twelve 1/3-cup muffin cups with foil muffin liners. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Mix mashed bananas, egg, melted butter and milk in medium bowl. Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients just until blended (do not overmix). Stir in chocolate chips.

Divide batter among prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Bake muffins until tops are pale golden and tester inserted into center comes out with some melted chocolate attached but no crumbs, about 32 minutes. Transfer muffins to rack; cool.

Makes 12.

When I have way too many ripe bananas all at one time, I freeze some of them and they're great in smoothies or to bake with later.
