Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


8 oz. unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 3/4 cup)
1/3 cup milk
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium-sized bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until they're smooth. Scrape the bowl down, then beat in the egg, spices, banana and milk. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, then gently stir them into the butter-sugar mixture.

Spoon the batter into 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Bake the muffins for 20 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and after ten minutes turn them out of the pan to cool.

Notes: Lovely served warm for breakfast, and come together very quickly. About 358 calories each.
