These super easy bakery style dark chocolate banana muffins are a sweet and indulgent breakfast treat, require just one bowl to make, and turn over-ripe bananas into chocolate-y bliss!
I can be a bit of a tornado in the kitchen. Okay, almost always. I have a habit of using every spoon in the drawer. Every spatula and whisk. Teetering piles of dirty dishes and measuring cups sit, precariously stacked, in the sink and on counter edges, left in my wake as I cook and bake and generally wreak havoc on our kitchen. I know I should tidy up as I go, but rarely do, distracted by the whole wonderful process of stirring and measuring and tasting.
So the fact that these chocolate banana muffins require only one mixing bowl to whip up means that I have no excuse; Even I have a hard time creating an enormous mess with this recipe. The dishwasher gets a brief reprieve.
And these muffins! These aren’t really breakfast muffins in the traditional sense, although who am I, really, to preach about appropriate early morning choices after this post?
These chocolate banana muffins are more indulgent than an everyday breakfast though. I call them muffins, but they could easily be considered cupcakes. I think of them as special-occasion muffins. Welcome-home-you-had-a-long-day muffins. Sweet-afternoon-moment muffins. I-love-you-just-because muffins.
Or, simply, Valentine’s-Day-is-coming-up-and-I’ve-got-chocolate-on-my-mind muffins.
At any rate, all it takes is one bowl (and a smattering of measuring spoons) and you’re on your way to dark chocolate banana bliss… A messy kitchen not included.
