Okay, I am a believer in trying to eat healthfully… getting lots of veggies in with healthy proteins and all. However, I’m also a big believer in the fact that food is meant to be enjoyed (I’m seriously good at enjoying my food).
So when I looked up recipes for banana chocolate chip muffins (they just sounded yummy), I found a recipe that was ranked 5 stars. Thinking I hit the jackpot I opened the recipe and began to read, then reread. I’m puzzled. Where’s the fat? I looked at a few of the reviews and read, “Finally a healthy muffin that tastes great.”
Well the minute I read “healthy” I was out. Sorry (not really), certain foods are meant to have fats and baked goods are one of them.
These are warm and delicious; moist with strong, yet balanced, flavors. I accidentally used three bananas instead of two (I have a big problem with not reading recipes carefully). I also chose to make gigantic muffins instead of regular sized. No reason, just wanted to play.
Super simple and fairly quick recipe for a lovely Sunday morning. Enjoy!
