I have a love/hate relationship with bananas. I love to eat them when they are green. I hate that they ripen so quickly on my counter. It’s a good thing I use a lot in smoothies and baked goods because once they turn yellow I won’t touch them with a ten foot pole. Plain that is…I don’t mind them mixed up with other things.
Like decadent yummy delicious over the top muffins 🙂

Last week I was peeling the over ripened bananas and putting them in freezer bags for future smoothies when my daughter asked if I could make her some banana bread. What is a mama to do when asked to bake some yumminess? That’s right! Stay up a little later than planned and make some treats for the girlie.
Now I did decide to go with muffins just because they bake so much faster than a thick loaf of bread. And who doesn’t like a little bit of chocolate chips in their muffins? I might have gone a little overboard creating these bad boys!!! A little bit of coffee, a little bit of chocolate, and a little bit of caramel.
These were by far my favorite banana muffin to date.
I know there are a ton of banana muffin recipes out there, but I hope you get a chance to make yourself some of these because who doesn’t want a healthy muffin loaded down with caramel and chocolate!
And they have coffee in them…the perfect pick-me-up anytime of day 🙂
What are you waiting for? You definitely need these. Stat!!!!
