Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Last weekend I made some killer muffins. Shane is in love with both my banana and pumpkin muffins so whenever I am home or with him I like to bake him some as a treat. I also enjoy them myself. Usually I am able to make 12 large muffins and 6-9 mini muffins so I keep the mini ones for myself but they only last a day or two. I usually just throw everything together in a bowl and change up my ‘recipe’ a little bit every time but this is my pretty standard ingredients.

I like to use some other type of flour when I bake to add some extra protein and texture and lately my favorite has been coconut flour but feel free to use almond, peanut, soy, or whatever your heart may desire. 🙂
