Snowy days often get me in baking mood and today was the perfect day to whip up a batch of muffins. Since I usually have a bunch of overripe bananas taking up space in my kitchen, why not try a healthy twist on one of my favorite recipes.
These muffins are absolutely delicious and make the perfect snack anytime of day...adding a few dark chocolate chips only adds to their yumminess. Of course, they quickly vanished in my house today right out of the oven...I'm guilty of at least two muffins today!
Oh...and did I mention these are actually pretty healthy too???
