Chocolate Chip and Almond Banana Muffins

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you guys! I am constantly losing out when I buy bananas. I buy them completely green, blink once and they’re T-O-T-A-L-L-Y done for.

I finally stopped being lazy and tried my hand at banana muffins. I’m not the best baker (y’all know that), but these are AWESOME. They are so springy and moist.

They can be made larger in batches of 12, or smaller in batches of 24. I like to make mine smaller, so I can enjoy the mini muffins throughout the week.

I hope you enjoy! The smell of toasted almonds and bananas is filling my kitchen!
