Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Our recipe makes good use of something called the ‘muffin method,’ where we combine all of the dry ingredients first and then add the wet ones, stirring until just barely combined. This downplays the amount of stirring you’ll need to do, which results in light and tender muffins.
Fill the cups full so that the batter will overflow just slightly during baking. This easy trick creates the perfect muffin top! Banana chocolate chip muffins are a great way to start your morning, but they also make for a perfectly sweet afternoon snack. You’ll love these!
