Banana Pecan and Kefir White Chocolate Chips Muffins

It's Sunday. I have two overripe bananas and plenty of time before he wakes up.
Here's what happens when these two events co-occur.

Yields: 12 large muffins
Total time: 30-40 minutes
Active time: 15 minutes

  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 2 tsp of pure vanilla extract 
  • 2 Tbsp of butter (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups of kefir
  • 2 cups of AP flour
  • 2/3 cups of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup of chopped pecan
  • 1/3 cup of white chocolate chips 

  • Preheat the oven at 350F. 
  • Mash the bananas and add all the wet ingredients. Whisk until well incorporated. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. 
  • Add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients, it will start bubbling. Add pecans and white chocolate chips.
  • Bake immediately for 20 minutes (or until it passes the toothpick test).
