Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

These classic Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are a favourite of mine. Perfect for snacking or making a large batch and freezing for later!

When I was a teenager I loved to bake. I still do, but, one of my favourite things to bake back then were banana chocolate chip muffins. I just love ’em, plus they’re such a classic, aren’t they?

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are great because they’re perfect for using up ripe bananas. Last week I intentionally bought extra bananas so that I could make a few large batches of these puppies. As I approach the end of my pregnancy, I’m also keeping in mind easy recipes that I can batch cook and freeze for easy postpartum meals and snacks, and these are on my list!
