Banana Chip Muffins….these are so delicious! {Recipe}

Today I had some bananas that were getting over ripe.  Usually I make banana bread or peel the bananas and freeze them for future banana breads.  I love banana bread…but, quite frankly, today the thought of another one just held no appeal..

So, I headed off to look through my trusty cookbooks.   Several hours later I emerged from a pile of cookbooks, recipe cards and magazines and asked myself…what was I looking for??  Oh yes, something to do with the dreaded, rotting bananas. 

So, once again I dove in and started looking for a banana recipe, this time I vowed to focus and not become distracted by all those recipes, tips, and cooking techniques!! lol 

This is the final result (minus 1 muffin…… you must have quality control!) …

    How long will these last outside since it does have banana?

    • Hi Crystal, It would depend on the weather conditions, but like much food, I would try to keep them out of the heat and wouldn’t leave out for more than an hour or two. Inside they will keep for a day or two but taste best when served the day they are made. Monica
