banana chocolate chip mini muffins

alright, so this isn’t a cookie. but it is a ‘you can’t just eat one’ snack – and it’s chock-full of chocolate chips – and bananas! and since i made some for today’s snack, i thought you wouldn’t mind if i shared this recipe as today’s ‘cookie’…so, for today, the banana chocolate chip mini muffin has been named ‘honorary cookie’.

these are ultra-simple to make, and they will fly off your countertop before you can wash the mini muffin pans. they are quite moist, they keep well for up to 3 days, and are favorites amongst kids and adults alike. if you’d like to make them even tastier, feel free to add 1/2 cup of chopped toasted walnuts to the batter. i tend to keep them nut-free for my nut allergy friends, but they are good with or without nuts!

i received this recipe for the full-sized muffins from a friend a number of years ago… since then, i have tinkered with the recipe to make them bite-sized, and often serve them as a breakfast snack to the load-out crew at the rep. tomorrow, however, they will make their ‘opera debut’ when they ‘go to work’ with hubby!
