Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Who doesn’t like the combination of chocolate with bananas? This combination works great in these muffins. It is one of my family’s favorite muffins. They are very moist and delicious. They have a wonderful chocolate flavor with a hint of banana.

The recipe calls for mini chocolate chips. I prefer to use regular sized. I like the bigger chunks of chocolate. Plus, I rarely have the mini’s in my pantry. I add the chocolate chips to the dry ingredients before you combine them with the wet. This prevents the regular chocolate chips from sinking in the muffin batter.┬áThis recipe came from Taste of Home.
