Something about Banana's is like a comfort food to me. They always seem to make me feel better. And everyone knows chocolate helps you feel better; To me at least. And I've never made Banana Muffins, to honest. Everything that I've made, and I had still never made Banana Muffins. I needed to make something with bananas because my bananas were extremely ripe and they needs to be used. So, Banana Muffins it was!
They surprising came out very moist! And there was enough Banana with chocolate in each muffin. It was a perfect muffin! I like it when you bite into a muffin and theres a hunk in it; I get so thrilled when that happens! I didn't think there'd really be to many hunks, since the banana's were so ripe I thought it would be smooth, but to my surprise there was. Made me happy :]
The muffins came out great, and I'm sure the people at work will love these. I decided to make these for everyone at work. They love banana bread, but it'd be just as good in a muffin, so I'm sure they'll love these!
