Chocolate- Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Maggie May Schill


I went to a seminar at a friend's dojo in Melbourne about a month ago. They always have a lot of bananas at those sort of things so visitors can get some quick potassium to help aid them in their training. This time around I was sent home with a huge bundle of left over bananas, so as a result I have a bunch of banana recipes to test. These muffins are the best of that experiment!
