Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Mini chocolate chips make these tender muffins extra tasty – perfect for breakfast and/or dessert!

With a 4-year-old in the house, we go through a lot of bananas. They make such a great snack, addition to cereal or yogurt, and are even the base for our most repeated breakfast recipe.

But sometimes, I’ll purposely buy too many bananas so I can make sure I have some that get overripe.

AKA perfect for baking with.

Plus, banana means it’s healthier, right? OK, so maybe we’ll add just a few mini chocolate chips…

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins turned out fabulously! I really liked the amount of chocolate in them. The mini chips made it just chocolaty enough to not be too dessert-y.

Not that I didn’t enjoy them for both breakfast and dessert.

They were super tender and delicious, and they disappeared quickly. Next time I’ll make a double batch!
