Fluffy, chocolatey and moist, that’s the best way I can describe these muffins! They’re so delicious, especially right out of the oven. This recipe can be made into a banana bread or muffins. I prefer the muffins since they don’t take as long to bake.
I baked these cookies with my daughter over the weekend. She actually made the muffin mixture, it’s that easy. Simply mix everything in one bowl and I like to use an ice cream scooper to scoop the batter into the muffin cups. You can try baking without muffin cups, just be sure to grease the pan well before adding the batter. Once they come out of the oven, your house will smell like a bakery! So good!
