When Overly Ripe Bananas Meet Chocolate Chips in Muffin Form

Banana bread/muffins are by far one of my favorite foods to eat (along with a bazillion other things).  It’s even better when some semi sweet chocolate chips are added to the mix.  Chocolate makes everything better, right? 😉 


Last night I noticed some way overly ripe bananers in the refrigerator, and I immediately knew I was going to make some banana muffins.  Then I remembered we had some chocolate chips in the pantry.  Mhmm banana chocolate chip muffins it was.

    These look delicious! I love baking with overripe bananas, they are so sweet! We haven’t been buying that many since the hubs has slowed his banana consumption, but I’m really missing having the overripe ones around for baking and smoothies :)
