Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Like his momma, my son has a sweet tooth and loves anything I bake.  I usually like to indulge his sweet tooth with yummy homemade treats that are full of goodness as well.  Today as I was cleaning my freezer I noticed that I had stashed away four ripe bananas in the freezer, and I decided to make some banana inspired treats for my boys. I used half the batter to make a banana loaf for my good friend that has just given birth, and will by stopping by in the morning to give her a treat, and I used the other half and made mini-muffins for my boys, which was also enjoyed by their friends next door 🙂

Below I have put together a simple and easy to follow recipe, hope you enjoy this Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe 🙂
