Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffins


banana walnut choc chip muffin Bananas and nuts, is there really any better combination?  There is when you add chocolate to it!

I really love banana anything and don’t know many people who don’t.  Bananas are naturally sweet and have a wonderful texture.

But I will say they make a huge difference when it comes to baking with them.  Bananas get sweeter as they ripen, and even, overripen.  Those are the bananas you want to use in your breads or muffins.  Otherwise you will be adding sugars and sweeteners to it and it’s really not necessary. Let your bananas almost get black on the outside before you bake with them and you will notice a remarkable difference in the end result.

Another great thing about this particular recipe is they do not require a Kitchen Aid or even a hand mixer, just big bowls and wooden spoons.

  1. These muffins are delicious!! So moist & not too sweet..Instead of the full amount of sour cream, I added some coconut oil, as 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil and 1 1/2 teaspoons for the sour cream. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

    • i’m so happy you liked them Denise! If it weren’t for my kids I would add coconut oil to everything! Thanks for your suggestions and I’m going to try them next time I make them
