Easy Banana Muffins

Easy Banana Muffins

Everyone needs a good recipe for banana muffins, and this recipe is it! These muffins are soft and buttery, packed with rich banana flavor and semi-sweet chocolate chips

There are two secrets to making the very best banana muffins every time. First, don’t over mix the batter. This will ensure a tender crumb. Second, make sure to use very ripe bananas. This will give your muffins a perfectly moist texture along with natural sugar for extra sweetness. 

If you’re not in the mood for chocolate, swap the chocolate chips for chopped walnuts or pecans. Yum! Need some other easy breakfast ideas? Try our Buttermilk BiscuitsSimple Vanilla SconesEasy Egg CupsCoffee Cake, or Sausage & Egg Casserole. Enjoy!
