Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins or Cupcakes

This recipe will work either as banana chocolate chip muffins or cupcakes. They are extremely moist and are excellent with or without frosting. 

1 stick butter (melted)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 bananas mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk (can substitute with 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 tablespoon vinegar) 
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time. Add mashed bananas and vanilla. Mix with mixer on medium-high speed. 

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. 

Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the banana mixture. Then add 1/3 of the buttermilk. Continue alternating between the flour and buttermilk, beating well after each addition. 

Fold in the chocolate chips.

Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes. 

Can be frosted and served as cupcakes.
