Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

It is a standing joke with both my family and friends at how many excuses I can come up with to not go to the grocery store. By far a very, very small portion of our food dollar is spent in a regular grocery store. That means I really don't get to see the food trends other than online. Last one of our friends visited with his little 8 yr old who had a package of mini muffins for a snack. There were 6 mini muffins in the package. That idea made a lot of sense to me because sometime you just want a snack and not a whole muffin. So I was off to buy a mini muffin tray. I chose a non-stick Wilton® 24 -cup mini muffin tin to use for mini muffins, cupcakes and tarts.

Banana just pairs nicely with chocolate so I decided to make banana chocolate chip muffins in between storms today. This muffin is easy to put together quickly and is a good way to use up any very ripe bananas. These muffins have a cake like texture and a lovely flavour!
