Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Everyone has those brown bananas on their counter
but have you found the ultimate banana muffin recipe?
one that promises amazing muffins everytime?
One that delivers a crunchy muffin top
with a soft and fluffy banana-y inside?

Well.. you're in luck!
Cuz Ive been making banana muffins for as long as I can remember
way back with my mom
and now I make them in my own kitchen

This recipe Im about to give you 
I found online (http://www.catcancook.com)
I have tweeked it and made it my own
I also have 2 versions
1 with butter and 1 without
With butter, the muffins are fluffy and crunchy topped
With applesauce, the muffins are a bit more dense but plenty moist which makes them just as tasty!

You will need 2 bowls, 1 large for wet ingredients, 1 small for dry
Also have your muffin tin ready with muffin liners in it
After stirring you wanna get those suckers in the oven asap
so the baking soda and powder do their thing and rise 

preheat oven to 350

Mash together with a potato masher the following

3-4 brownish yellowish bananas
1/2 cup sugar (I use unrefined coconut sugar, any unrefined sugar is great!)
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup of melted butter or 1/3 cup plain applesauce
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
set aside

Bowl #2:
Mix together gently with a spatula

1 1/2 cups bobs red mills gluten free all purpose flour mix
(since these are muffins you dont need to add xanthan gum)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

add bowl 2 ingredients to bowl 1
mix gently with a spatula
until flour is just combined
