Author Notes: I had these two overly ripe bananas sitting there staring at me. These sad looking bananas didn’t deserve to be in the trash so I immediately decided to make banana bread. Then I realized that I didn’t have enough of these deathly looking bananas to make a loaf of banana bread, so I decided to cut the portions in half and made muffins instead.themessimake.com

Makes 12

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2.5 tablespoons melted salted butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • pinches of salt
  1. Pre-heat the oven at 350º F.
  2. Line a regular muffin tin with either cupcake liners or parchment paper cut in 5×5 squares.
  3. Mash the bananas.
  4. Add melted salted butter to the mashed bananas.

  9. Top with more chocolate chips if you want. There is no such thing as too much chocolate. :)
