Banana Choc Chip Muffins

Banana choc chip muffins

Makes 16

Now I’m calling these banana-y beauties muffins but they’re kind of a cross between a cupcake and a muffin. They’re dense like a muffin yet fluffy like a cupcake, so perhaps I should call them a cuffin! Whatever you call them, these babies are delicious. They freeze well, go great in lunch boxes and make a delicious tea time treat.

The choc chips are of course an added bonus because I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, chocolate makes everything better! I like to sprinkle some value added extra chips on the top if I remember, but they look and taste just as awesome when I don’t!

I think everyone will go bananas for these!

  • Erin Kemp

    Am I understanding this correctly…. You half fill the empty muffin holders and then put mixture on top?

    • This recipe will make 16 muffins so line 16 holes of 2 muffin tins with paper cases for the muffins and fill the 4 empty muffins holes half full with water. This makes for more even cooking. I hope that makes sense 🙂
