These banana chocolate chip muffins are the perfect solution to ripe bananas.
Today’s muffin recipe is due to having two overly ripe bananas on my counter. I just wasn’t in the mood for banana bread, although I have an amazing banana bread recipe.
But a banana muffin sounded pretty good.
I added in some mini chocolate chips and I had an amazing muffin.
I tweeked my basic muffin recipe and used a combination of oil and sour cream for the liquid. (that’s also what makes my banana bread recipe so amazing.) The oil and sour cream help create a very moist, light muffin.
I only had 2 bananas but I think next time I might add in a third for a little more intense banana flavor but 2 worked just great.
I liked using mini chocolate chips rather than the full size one. You get just a hint of chocolate that way in each bite.
So I am taking requests for new muffin flavor combinations. Do you have a favorite flavor combination you would like to see in a muffin? Leave a comment and let me know.
