Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Before you throw out your over-ripe bananas, try making this easy recipe for Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.

While I like them fresh, bananas 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).
