Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins ~ Your Favorite Homemade Banana Muffins Loaded with Chocolate Chips for the Perfect Sweet Touch! Perfect for Breakfast if you Like Chocolate!
Lighty, fluffy muffins with a hint of banana and chocolate! I mean, how can’t we love that for breakfast? Especially when they are easy to make and the perfect grab and go breakfast! I’m always on the run in the morning and I love breakfasts that are easy to make and I can hand off to the kids when we are walking out the door. Plus, who doesn’t have bananas that need to be used up?
A little trick on that leftover bananas. Did you know you can freeze them? I do it all the time! If I want to freeze them to use in muffins, banana bread or something like that I just throw them in the freezer whole, with the peeling on.
If I want to use them for smoothies then I peel them and break them in half, you can always quarter them, and throw them in a Ziploc bag. Then when I want a smoothie I just throw them in the blender cup and I’m good to go. Plus, a frozen banana in a smoothie is way better than a room temp one!
I also love that these Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are made with pantry staples! No need to run to the grocery store to get ingredients that you will only use once. I just don’t roll like that.

Speaking of rolling… I totally can roll around after this holiday season. It’s bad. I’m to the point where about two pairs of jeans fit and by “fit” I mean they are usable after a few squats and lunges. Not good my friends. Not good at all.
You see, working from home has not been my friends. The kitchen is only a few steps away. How do you guys do it if you are at home? Before I could simply bring the food I needed to work and I wasn’t tempted all day long.
It’s horrible! Horrible. Add in the fact I’m a FOOD BLOGGER and then it’s like a double whammy.
I totally need to find my will-power and embrace it. Then throw all the food in my house out!
I actually did that over break. As in, I cleaned out my pantry. It’s so awesome. I can actually find what I need. Why do I always let it go way longer than I should? Pretty soon stale chips, crackers and crumbs are overtaking the space as I rummage around in it.
Then if I can’t find it I just buy more! Totally does not solve the messy pantry problem I’ll tell you what!

If chocolate chips in your muffins aren’t your thing please feel free to leave them out. If you’d like to add chopped nuts that would be excellent too!
