Emily’s Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


Chocolate Chip Banana MuffinsMy niece, Emily, posted these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins on Facebook last week. The caption under the photo read, “Since I was not busy this afternoon, I made some chocolate chip banana muffins!! I tried one and they are super delicious!!”

I thought it was so awesome that my 13 year old niece decided to bake when she had a little free time instead of watching TV or YouTube.  I asked if I could share her recipe with you on A Passionate Plate. She agreed and wrote the following about her recipe.

Chocolate and Bananas are two of my favorite foods, so I just love this recipe. Even though there are chocolate chips in it, you can still taste the banana and the muffins are so moist that I keep day dreaming about them during school. Also, you can use apple sauce instead of butter to make them a little more healthy which is good for people who are trying to eat right!

    These are the best banana chocolate chip muffins I’ve ever eaten! I used the melted butter in place of the applesauce and added 1/2 tsp. vanilla to the batter, then sprinkled each unbaked muffin with a little cinnamon sugar before popping into the oven. I just couldn’t help myself and ate two while they were still warm and the chocolate chips were soft and gooey!
