Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


It is the start of a holiday weekend here in the United States. Memorial Day, celebrated the fourth Monday in May, is to honor all of the service members who have died while serving in the Armed Forces. It is often confused with Veteran’s Day which is always observed on November 11th. Veteran’s Day honors all who have served in the Armed Forces. So, though they basically are both patriotic holidays they are actually not the same.

For us, it is also the unofficial start of summer in our little tourist town. Places that have been shuttered for the winter will suddenly open this weekend. Though Lake Michigan is still far too cold to swim in yet the beaches will begin to fill with people picnicing.

I needed some quick breakfasts for the upcoming times when all are home and these muffins were perfect. They are not too sweet and you can add milk chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips (depending on your preference).

Verdict:

If your house is anything like mine make a double batch of these so you will have plenty to freeze. Package them individually so the kids can take them from the freezer and warm them in the microwave. Yum!!!

  1. I’m a little skeptical of mixing bananas with chocolate! Banana nut muffin is totally my calling though 😍

      Easy to substitute nuts! The chocolate adds a bit of sweetness. Chocolate covered bananas are a favorite in our house.

    YUMMM! Zucchini bread is great with choc.chips as well. Didn’t believe the farmer’s market guy when he told me, but it is great. Chocolate is my “guilty pleasure.”
