These scrumptious Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are so quick and moist that you will never pitch those old overripe bananas again. They freeze well and defrost on the counter in about thirty minutes making them perfect for those quick on the go weekday breakfasts. We just love fresh homemade baked muffins for breakfast. These muffins, Morning Glory Muffins, Best Blueberry Muffins, and Apple Spice Crunch Muffins are just a few of our favorites.
