Banana and Choc Chip Muffins

Banana and Choc Chip Muffins

This recipe sort of just happened.  I mean, what else do you do with three very ripe bananas and choc chips lying around the kitchen.  Banana and choc chip muffins of course!

If you know me, you know I am a bit of a careless cook (it does my Mum’s head in).  I don’t usually stick to a recipe or measuring devices….too much washing up for one girl to handle.  So if you don’t stick to the ingredients precisely…chances are neither did I and they still turned out the best muffins I have ever made. Healthy…without tasting healthy.  (Trickier said than done).  Add your own flavour and flare to the recipe and let me know how you go!
