Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

It can be tough to get my kids to eat early before they head to school. But I know when I offer them on of these they will always accept! I can send them off to school they have some calories in their bellies.

This recipe is one you can make a big batch of and store in gallon Ziploc bags and keep for the week. Make a new batch every Sunday so you’re ready for the busy school mornings.

How To Ripen Bananas Quick

Needing some brown bananas but yours are fresh from the store? There’s a hack for that.

All you have to do is bake them. Yep! Just put them in the oven on a baking sheet on 300 for roughly 15 minutes or until the skin turns black.

Once you let them cool, they’re perfectly ready to be scooped out and put into your Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.
