Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Banana Chocolate-Chip Muffins

This recipe comes from my mom and she makes these muffins every time we come to visit them in Texas. She always has a huge Tupperware container sitting out on the counter and its the first thing I eat when we walk in the door, usually after our super long 12 hour drive!

Since we’ve already decided that we will be celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas here at our house in Florida, I was really excited to whip up a bunch of these for old times sake! They tasted just like my mom makes them, all chocolatey and delicious! (Even better since I had my special helper with me!)
