I had a bunch of overripe bananas at home so my mom suggested making banana muffins! Because of this, I searched up some banana muffin recipes–and thankfully I was able to find one! Here’s the original recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-chip-banana-bread-ii/
This recipe was delicious! It was very moist and very easy to make. This recipe called for a LOT of sugar and some mayo 😳 so I altered some of the measurements for my recipe! I cut down a lot of sugar so it was perfect for my family (because they dont like very very sweet desserts). I thought the sweetness of the chocolate chips and bananas was enough to make the muffins sweet enough. The original recipe calls for walnuts, but I put in chopped pecans! You are free to use whatever your heart desires. I also made it in muffin tins, while the original recipe made it as a banana loaf! (If you wanted to make it into a loaf, please bake for 45 minutes). I only made half of the servings that the original recipe calls for.
Here’s what I used:
Banana Chocolate Chip Pecan Muffins

Enjoy 😊On a side note, I think the best part of baking is being able to make delicious treats for people! It’s so nice to make people smile and enjoy the deliciousness that I created. If I can bring joy to people by making them small treats, I will continue to bake and enhance my baking skills. I hope God will continue to increase my skills so that I can make even more delicious food!
