Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I used to make this recipe almost weekly when my children were young.

These muffins are are full of banana and chocolate chips…such a wonderful combination that it is hard to eat just one!

Warm from the oven when the chocolate chips are runny …small hands and chins covered with melty chocolate….divine! Of course, just as good when cooled.

These are a good addition to any school lunch box. Nut free so no potential issue there. I could go on and on about all the ways to enjoy these muffins but I think you should just make them, enjoy them and see for yourselves how yummy they are!!

Here is the recipe

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
