Banana muffins are an absolute classic and when you add in some chocolate, you end up with something even better! Say hello to these delicious Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.
I love these muffins because they take no time at all to whip up. Plus they're the perfect way to use up any over-ripe bananas you have lying around (the riper the better!).
You can remove the chocolate chips if you prefer, or even add in some chopped pecans or walnuts for variety.
These muffins make the perfect afternoon treat or lunchbox filler. Quick, easy and very yummy!
