Chocolate Banana Muffins

Sometimes I wonder why I buy bananas. I buy a bunch of them at the store every week, but I rarely ever eat one. My kids will have one occasionally, but since we aren’t home much it seems like I am always left with a bunch of spotty boring brown bananas. I usually freeze them, and I am always searching for a new way to use them up.

Any recipe that includes chocolate is going to catch my eye, and this was no disappointment! The muffins were super simple to throw together and quite delicious. My kids couldn’t get enough of them! Perhaps I will start eating bananas more often- at least more Chocolate Banana Muffins!
