LP and I bake all the time now and I always try and think of something new to bake to keep it interesting for her. We had some old bananas to use up and I didn’t fancy making a Banana Bread Loaf again so instead we made Mini Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins.

Why should you make Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins?

Banana muffins are a really lovely breakfast idea but also a snack that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. The addition of a few mini chocolate chips make these muffins a really lovely treat too. We have them as an alternative to chocolate brioche and they keep really well for a few days in an airtight container.

For this recipe we use milk chocolate chips but you could use dark chocolate chips or even white chocolate chips if you wanted. Whatever you choose, the muffins will taste fantastic!

These Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are a great addition to any lunchbox, can be enjoyed as a picnic staple and are easy to take with you on any day out or little adventure. Add to that the fact they use up old bananas, reducing waste, and you have a cake that really ticks every box.
