You guys. I always have a lot of bananas. I put bananas in smoothies, I freeze them to make ice cream, and I make a lot of banana bread muffins. Like, seriously. Inviting me to a party? Plan on having some banana bread muffins. I buy too many bananas so I don’t run out, but I end up having more than I need, so when they start to turn super brown, I make muffins. And they’re usually this flavor: chocolate chip!
Feel free to try some other mix-ins. Maybe some walnuts, raisins, dried cranberries, apples, etc. Or leave out the chocolate chips for regular banana bread. Perhaps you leave out a banana or two and add pumpkin instead. You can even throw some greens into the blender with the wet ingredients for a punch of nutrition without changing the taste at all! The options are endless. YUM! 🙂

*Like with most of my recipes, you can add 1/4-1/2 tsp turmeric for added nutrition but no altered taste. And you can throw a handful or two of greens into the blender with the wet ingredients to add even more nutrition!
