Banana chocolate chip muffins are a great way to use up ripe bananas. These muffins are moist, yummy and made without butter. That was the first reason to pick the recipe. Though bakes with butter tastes lot tastier, in muffins I don’t mind oil at all.
Few years ago I was part of a baking group called sweet and simple bakes. I joined the group late and also missed some baking some of the bakes even after joining the group. The bakes from this group were simple and delicious at the same time. Today’s bake is one of the bakes I missed baking with the group. I am glad I finally got to bake these. Mr. U is not really a muffins person and he ate 4 of the 6 muffins 😮 . Since I have lot of baking to do this month, I made ½ the recipe. If you have any ripe bananas, do try this recipe and it sure is a keeper!
