Even though there are only two of us, these don’t last long in our house! We eat them for breakfast, snacks, and dessert.
I purposely don’t add too much sugar to this recipe-- it doesn’t need it! Between the 3 ripe bananas and the chocolate chips, they are plenty sweet enough.
These muffins are a great way to use up those bananas that are overripe and sitting on your counter. And you don’t even taste the zucchini but it adds a nice green pop of color and extra nutrients.
Make sure to grease your muffin tin well, or use cupcake liners! Even in a nonstick pan, muffins stick.
