Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Sometimes the best things to find in the fruit basket are a couple of over-ripe bananas. These Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins helped me measure and stir away the stresses of last week, and turned out to be a lovely Sunday morning breakfast. Banana cho 1

The purple silicon baking cups were a gift from my lovely bestie, Rae, back when my first book – all about a bakery – was first published a couple of years ago. Even though the small press that published that book has since closed its doors – I have the rights again and haven’t made up my mind about what to do with the manuscript – I still get a big smile whenever I use the cups and think about all I learned through my first foray into publishing. Trust me, it was a lot. Thanks, Rae!

Happy Sunday to you! It’s a mild plus 2 here today, so I’m going to lace up my sneakers and hit the paths along the canal.

Thanks for stopping by,

    1. Thanks, Lynn! I decided to leave the cake in a mug experiment for another day, ha ha! ;-) I hope you’re having a great Sunday so far too! xo

      1. Fantastic! It’s nice to get that kind of break in February! We’re enjoying a little reprieve here too, after getting 50 com of snow last week, ha ha, eek! xo

      2. Oh wow! That’s what the beginning of our winter was like, the first green xmas since I was a kid, but it’s all caught up with us now! Must be because it’s an El Nino year. I keep telling myself, just one more month and it’s spring!!! :-)

    1. Thank you, Lynne! I love the banana chocolate chip combo too. It’s so simple but maybe that’s why I find it so comforting. The muffins are gone already, ha ha! I hope you like the recipe when you get a chance to try it out. And I hope you have a great week too! :-)

    1. Thanks, Claire! :-) Oh yes, I totally agree! I didn’t get a close-up pic of the cups, but they even have this pretty floral design on the sides.

    1. I had a very stress-relieving day, thanks! The baking and the run just set the tone for the rest of the day and I had a quite hum about me. :-) I wish you could still read my first book, but it’s out of print now that the publisher closed its doors. However, if you send me your address, I’d happily mail you a copy of my novella! Or better yet, I might be able to hand deliver it. You see, I might be visiting London in early April for a wedding. How far is London from where you guys are?

    1. Thank you, Liz! I probably ate a few too many of these ones. I must admit, they are my favourite kind of muffin, along with blueberry. Thanks for dropping in! :-)
