Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

Happy Friday everyone!!

I have a great weekend breakfast recipe for you! Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins! I don't know about you, but I am a huge muffin fan!  They are so easy to make and taste SO good fresh out of the oven with some butter smeared on top! I also love that this recipe only uses one ripe banana, just in case you don't have two or three laying around! I think these would be delish with cinnamon chips too, instead of chocolate chips! I think I need to head in the kitchen and try making a batch with those now!

Enjoy and I hope you have a fabulous and fun filled weekend! The cold snap finally broke here in MN and it's supposed to be around 30 degrees this weekend. I think we might have to find a fun outside activity to do! :)
