Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Recipe

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins


Friends that know me well, may wonder if I actually tried this recipe, because it’s not a secret that while I do enjoy fresh bananas, they are one of my least favorite ingredients in desserts and baked goods. I’ll pass on banana cream pie, banana pudding, banana nut bread … you name it.

However when my kids were younger I was at a playgroup where the hostess made these Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins, and surprisingly I thought they were quite delicious and not too banana-y. Or banana-ish. They were delish!

I suggest you combine ingredients in a mixer. You could try by hand if it’s been a while since you’ve worked out. Even though my butter was softened, when I mixed it by hand it was hard to get the butter to blend well, then I didn’t know if it was butter or bananas I was mashing against the side of the bowl (you may laugh at me now).

Blueberry Pie Recipe

Blueberry Pie is something I remember my grandmother and mother making, and it is most definitely a family favorite (my sister’s very favorite pie, in fact). It is so super simple it’s surprising to hear friends have never tried making one!

I first shared this Blueberry Pie recipe last summer in my Must-Haves for a Summer Picnic post. It is so divine, it deserves its very own dedicated post.

You can certainly make your own crust from scratch – my grandmother always did, but to save a few steps I let Pillsbury make the crust.

Enjoy! And please – do come back and comment if you make it and let me know what you think!
