Whole Wheat Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Today I have another easy muffin recipe. This is another recipe I baked in India for my nephew. Muffins came out ok but I was not happy with the texture and even these muffins were done in less than 10 minutes in my mom’s oven. As mentioned earlier, I could not figure out my mom’s oven settings. When my nephew tasted these muffins, he did not look pleased but slowly finished off all the muffins.

I baked these muffins again 10 days ago and shared some with Nisha & Mireille. Both of them liked the muffins. I followed the recipe as give and made ½ the recipe. When I baked these muffins for my nephew, I left out the spices. If you curious to know what all I posted this month for this baking marathon, check here.
