Choc-chip banana muffins

I must be feeling better.

I caught sight of two weary past-the-sell-by-date bananas in the fruit bowl at lunch time and before I even realised what I was doing I’d turned up the oven and was reaching for my sieve.

Last week’s muffin post was my most popular post in the history of this little blog.

I especially enjoyed hearing from friends who had made the muffins with success. So here is another muffin recipe: really just an adaptation of last weeks recipe. You get a choice, choc-chip or double chocolate, which ever takes your fancy. To ensure superior results, my best suggestion is that you use the best chocolate and the best cocoa you can find. The bananas should be ripe to the point of rotting.
