Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is a great way to use up all those over ripe bananas. These Banana chocolate chip muffins are the perfect pair to a cup of freshly brewed coffee. It makes no difference if they are eaten for breakfast, snack or dessert, they are good any time of the day. 


A few months back I did a campaign for Nestle using their Delightfuls chocolate chips. I think you have seen them they are the ones that have stuff in the middle?

I was not sure at the time exactly what I was going to make with them, so I bought two of each. I ended up making a hot chocolate with the chocolate mint kind.

Well to make a long story short, I stashed a few in the freezer. Mainly the ones with the peanut butter inside.

So when I decided to make banana muffins I realized I used up all my pecans for my Bourbon Pecan Tart. I saw the stash of chips in the door of the freezer and snatched a bag to add to my muffins.

The rest is history y’all.

Another great recipe is born.
