Extra moist buttermilk banana chocolate chips muffins

Muffins are one of our favourite snacks. They are easy to make which doesn’t even require any mixer. So this is my go-to bake when I have to prepare something for my kids quickly. This is especially so since I had overripe bananas lying in my fruit basket, I might as well made some for their tea break and breakfast tomorrow.

if you don’t have buttermilk, you may use sour cream instead. Otherwise you may want to try my other moist banana recipe. Here’s also the blueberry crumble muffins.
