Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are perfect for any weekend mornings!

Great to take with you for on-the-go weekdays or enjoy them as a snack in the afternoon.  They make the perfect snacks for the kids too!

 

 

Cook’s Notes and Tip:  

  • When bananas get too ripe, just toss them into the freezer.  When you need one for a recipe, just peel the banana (while frozen) like an apple.  Perfect when you need them for a recipe or a smoothie. 

  • But for this recipe, place frozen bananas into the microwave to defrost.  It’s best to have all ingredients at the same temperature before baking.

      Thank you,Jeff! It’s funny, our mother only used olive oil with her baked goods, it was normal for us back then!
