Sometimes pictures can speak a thousand words. Pictures of Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins…well, I’m thinking that might be over a thousand words. Just about all of them having to do with OH MY YUM!
You’ve heard about people being crazy for muffin tops, right? Well, these muffins are definitely worthy of topping that muffin top list. I mean, on top of double chocolate banana muffins, a scattering of chocolate chips and walnuts! The toppings on the muffin tops have got to be calling your name.
I used just a little bit of nonstick cooking spray when baking these delicious muffins, and had the best luck I have ever had with muffins not sticking AT ALL. I just barely loosened around the muffins, but really don’t think I even needed to do that.
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins–yes, the name is a mouthful–but you can be sure that its a mouthful worth biting into.
I’m not much of a morning person, so baking up a batch of muffins on a school night is the perfect solution for me. It’s nice to be able to surprise my kids with a yummy breakfast treat without having to get up super early to bake. Not that these muffins really even take all that long from start to finish. But, some mornings every last minute I can sleep is appreciated.
My kids dug into these muffins. As did their friends. And my friends. With several rave reviews, I know I’ve found myself a keeper.
Moist, chocolate, and so, so tasty. And a little bit nutty (like me). Yep, I went for the win on this one folks.
