Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

DSC06587

I’m coming clean.. Lately my household has been in a muffin craze. I’ve baked at least ten types of muffins over the last few weeks. Carrot Muffins are still definitely in my top three but there is something about Double Chocolate Muffins that feels more like a treat.

They’re denser than your average muffin thanks to the banana and are rich in chocolate flavour like a decadent fluffy brownie. In other words, you’ll love them!

Bonus: Elowyn thinks they’re cupcakes and accepts them even when she’s in a picky food mood. Another Bonus: Our household notoriously struggles to finish all of our bananas before they over-ripen which makes this recipe perfect.
