Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

February 2, 2012

 

 

I discovered these when friends of the family used to make them all the time.  I recreated the recipe because I started to crave them! And once I had kids I realized they are a great way to use up ripe bananas.  This is also a great recipe to make with kids too (mashing bananas & snacking on chocolate chips keeps them very occupied). 

I make them different every time too, sometimes just with chocolate chips, sometimes half chocolate, half white chocolate chips, and feel free to add walnuts too. They make your house smell sooo good too, you’ll be smiling when you see the bananas turn brown because you know that these beauties are right around the corner.  And I always make them mini (built-in portion control) but you can make them big.  

These travel so well I always try to make them before a trip or a visit. Enjoy!
