Chocolate Banana Muffins filled with chocolate chips & sprinkled with sugar. Homemade but you don’t even have to get the mixer out!
Since having a baby, we always keep bananas on hand. They make the perfect snack or addition to any of Baby Girl’s meals. But when they get too ripe (no one likes a brown banana. Actually, my brother does, but most people don’t), they’re perfect for baking.
CHOCOLATE BANANA MUFFINS
These muffins were my first shot at baking in my new electric oven and they were a success. There has been a bit of a learning curve using the electric cooktop, but these turned out perfect. The banana flavor is subtle and the chocolate chips are nice surprises. Plus, the sugar crust on the top? My favorite.
You know the Chiquita Banana jingle, right? Everyone does. “Any way you want to eat them – It’s impossible to beat them – But, bananas like the climate of the very, very tropical equator – So you should never put bananas in the refrigerator”.
