Here’s the story about these muffins in a nutshell:
We had some bananas. My three year old and I decided we’d make some banana buttermilk muffins. We added chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, and even topped them with extra chocolate chips. We put them in the oven. A few minutes later, my daughter noticed the bananas were still on the counter. Turns out, they were just as good without the bananas. Go figure.
Meet our banana-less Nutty Chocolate Chip Muffins.
