Did Someone Say Chocolate Chip Muffins?

A guilty pleasure for breakfast is beckoning! Banana muffins laced with delicious chocolate chips, warm and melty, are just begging to be served on the breakfast table! These are Noah’s favorite- the batch will rarely make it through two days in our house. I’m honestly not sure if it’s Noah or Jamey that keeps sneaking another one from the kitchen counter. Regardless, if you ask them what kind of muffins they want, they will most definitely ask for these every single time!

What’s the Difference?

I make another recipe that is similar to this one in flavor, but they are very different. Some bread recipes can be made into muffins without any changes. My Chunky Monkey Bread- a Banana Chocolate Chip Bread recipe- does not make good muffins. The rise is just not the same. If you want to try making bread instead of muffins, please try this recipe:
