Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins ~ #MuffinMonday

by Kate on July 2, 2012

Happy Monday everyone! After not having muffins last week, it’s time to get back to it although I think last Monday’s recipe was well worth skipping muffins for. I would love to have that for breakfast! I may have done just that at one point… just a handful. Maybe. But I digress. This Monday I have muffins for you and muffins are  definitely more “breakfasty.” You won’t feel the least bit ashamed telling people you ate them.

This morning I bring to you bananas and chocolate! This is a classic combination. I love fruit for all its virtues just by itself however, I also never mind fruit with chocolate. These muffins will start your week off right with their moist cake thanks to the bananas and some sour cream. They’ll also give you a little something sweet with chocolate chips scattered throughout. Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Glad to have you back this week! Love that you combined the bananas with this week’s recipe…it’s like you did a two for one muffin! Happy Muffin Monday 🙂

I Love bananas with chocolate, and these muffins are the absolute bomb! Yhe slice of banana on top of each one is perfect 🙂 My fave muffin place makes a banana muffin that’s to die for..and they smush a bunch of banana slices into the top before baking. My favorite part in the muffin top!

Thanks Lisa! Glad you like the banana slice on top. I actually almost immediately regretted that cause the bananas turned brown during baking (duh!) and I thought that looked pretty unappetizing. But it definitely tasted good!

I love banana chocolate chip muffins! So pretty with the banana slice on top.

Thanks Anna! They went FAST! I think they were all gone in just over a day.

Like I said, best of both worlds! Love that you topped it with a slice of banana too! 🙂

made these today & they’re yumm 😀 added vanilla essence & cinnamon too. thanks !


Kate July 5, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Oh I’m so glad to hear you made them and enjoyed them! I love your addition of cinnamon and vanilla essence. I actually debated whether to sprinkle in some cinnamon or not. I asked my husband and through a mouthful of muffin he told me they were perfect the way they were but I agree with you, cinnamon would have been a plus. Thanks for letting me know you liked them!

Chocolate and fruit always work well together–you’re right! Nice job on the muffins–they look very tasty!
