Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

My plan for the other night was to just make the Healthy Blueberry Muffins and give them to some friends at the farmers market the next morning. Then I noticed my bananas were super ripe. I mean no one is winning fight club they’re so ripe. So I decided to quickly whip together these Chocoalte Chip Banana Muffins. Half of these muffins have walnuts tossed in because my fiance requested some.

I hate baking with nuts. I hate the texture. I hate the taste. To me, there is no good thing that nuts add to a baked goods. The only exception is Pecan Pie, and even then, I’m not a fan. But, I will add some for my fiance and remind him walnuts are gross.

Recipe Notes:

I love that these are a one-bowl recipe. I don’t need to dirty additional bowls and it portions out so nicely!

To give these muffins the coffee shop look, I used these Tulip Style Muffin Liners. I love how these look and I love how they unwrap from the muffin. So many cupcake liners take half the cupcake with it, but these unstick with minimal muffin loss.

Finally, if you want to make your muffins even use a large Cookie Scoop. I’ve talked about these on my Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookies and how they are a game changer. If you haven’t invested in them yet, do it!

Spice note- I use cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamon in this recipe. When ever possible, try to use fresh ground nutmeg, it makes the spice pop. As for the cardamon, I used ground and WOW what a flavor it adds. I honestly don’t know where cardamon has been all my life. I’ve been missing out.
