DISAPPOINTING DISCLAIMER

There are some people in my family who don’t like chocolate. I won’t name names but it makes me cringe. If you have this same, let’s say, “misfortune”, you can rest assured that these muffins are also frickin’ awesome without the chocolate chips. (FYI. the recipe calls for a cup of chocolate chips. Since I only made half of these muffins with chocolate chips, I used 1/2 a cup when baking mine.)


Nearly every time I go to the grocery store, I buy bananas. More often than not, I’ve “accidentally” let them sit too long and have had to “figure out” what to do with them. And then I make these! Funnily enough, people have off the cuff started offering me their extra bananas…in hopes.

 
 

Pro-Tip

If you’re really into making these muffins but your bananas aren’t ripe enough, put them in the oven at 350º. They should be blackened in roughly 15 minutes.
