My Bake Project: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Like, I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I am really getting into the art of baking, especially now I have an additional tool to help me out. Soon baking will probably become my addiction and sooner I’ll be able to get the right recipe that I want to, and that is delectable for the family.
For now, I’m indulging myself into muffins and using bananas as the main attraction because I wanted something healthy that everyone at home can enjoy.

So without further ado, here’s my latest bake project; actually the 5th as stated in my Instagram with recipe derived from Laura Vitale’s kitchen.

Because, not all ingredients in her recipe are available in my kitchen, I substituted the rest like;

Instead of ½ Cup Vegetable Oil, I used ¼ cup of butter and no baking soda (I’m still in search for the ingredient, can’t find it in the grocery nearby). And also I minimized the amount of Chocolate chips to ¼ cup, salt to less that ¼ tsp. 

After following the instructions, here’s the finished product;

My version of the Banana Chocolate Chips Muffins with the taste that satisfied everyone who got together the taste test including myself . Hehehe

Though the taste got a passing mark, I think I have a problem with the appearance, the muffins did not raise up. Probably, the baking powder was very minimal. What do you think? Any suggestions what I need to do next time?
