Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups flour
1/2 t. salt
3 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
2T orange juice or other acidic juice
3 mashed bananas
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream sugar, eggs and butter. Add dry ingred. and orange juice. Mix and add bananas. Add choc. chips last. Put into greased muffin pan (or use cup cake liners) and bake at 350 degrees for 20 min.

*Note: You can use 1/2 cup applesauce instead of butter for a lower fat muffin and you can omit the chocolate chips if desired.

**You may need to bake them a bit longer but do a toothpick test at 20 min. You don't want to over cook these. Also when they cool, get them right into a container so they don't dry out. Also, they freeze pretty well.
