Chocolate chip banana muffins are easy to make, soft, and fluffy in texture. Ideal for breakfast or a snack. Basic pantry ingredients and simple recipe

Muffins are always good any time of the day, and I know many of you may eat these for breakfast or brunch, but sometimes I'll eat these served warm with a drizzle of custard, as a dessert.

They're flexible with the flavors, so for this recipe, I've used banana which is the dominant flavor. For the chocolate, I've used dark chocolate chips, but you can of course use milk or white chocolate. You could also throw in some chopped nuts if you like. Say pecans or walnuts, those would be lovely!

As far as the recipe goes, it's very easy and straight forward, it's just a case of mixing the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and then baking.

These muffins freeze very well, so if you wanted to make a batch and freeze, simply bring back to room temperature and they'll taste just as good as the day you baked them! If storing normally, pop them in an air tight container and they'll keep soft and fresh for 3 - 4 days.
