When I was younger, I’d eat at least 2 bananas a day. Aside from berries, bananas are my all time favorite fruit, which I feel like is uncommon. But, in my opinion, bananas are overlooked. Yes, many people love the banana and peanut butter combo, and so many people love banana bread, and a ton of people put bananas in their smoothies, but when is banana ever the main character? The star of the show? I’ve been trying to give bananas their main character moment for a HOT minute, they’ll always be number 1 in my heart.
But not only are bananas my favorite fruit, they’re also one of my favorite ingredients, like many so many other people! Bananas have this amazing quality to them that just somehow adds the perfect sweetness and moistness (yes, I said it) to anything we bake with them. It’s just magical, and they can do SO much more than banana bread smoothies!
I made these a few days ago and Chad & I have singlehandedly eaten the entire batch in two days. The fluffiness, the slight crunch on top, the extra little hints of chocolate sprinkled throughout… they are my ideal muffins!
If you made this recipe, I’d love to see it! Let me know in the comments and tag me on IG at @simply_unbeetable
