  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 3 extra-ripe bananas, mashed (1 cup)

  • ¾ cup light brown sugar

  • 1 large egg

In a separate bowl, whisk together banana, sugar, egg, butter, and milk. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients then stir in chocolate chips.
