Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins


A friend of mine threw a baby shower for another friend of ours this morning. She had asked me to bring muffins, because she was serving brunch type foods. I made these chocolate chip banana muffins to take. They were a hit, and everyone was asking for the recipe. I think that they could be a great thing to take to any brunch or breakfast themed shower or party. My friends new baby boy is so sweet. I got to hold him lots, and makes me miss the newborn stage. Maybe I am ready for a new baby. I say not. They are so fun to hold, but lots of work still. I still have a my sweet baby girl who is actually going to be one in 27 days. Where did the time go??

One tip I like to add a 1/2 up to  1 cup of sour cream to muffin recipes because it helps to make them nice and moist. I hate eating a dry muffin. Hope you enjoy this recipe!
