Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Recipe

by Ann-Marie on July 23, 2014

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).

Easy Way to Pit Cherries (Video How-to)

The only factor that makes them not so fun, is the process of pitting cherries. Last summer my mom gave me a Cherry Chomper – it almost looks like an As Seen On TV kitchen gadget, but I’m here to share with you, it works! And the kids can use it safely.
