Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Give these Double Chocolate Banana Muffins a try the next time you have brown bananas. You will want to have breakfast every day if it includes these.
Do your kids ask why all the time? Our three question every little thing that we say as parents. Why did you do that? Why did you say that? Why does he get that and I don’t? Why? Why? Why? Most of this is just normal conversation, and we are able to use these questions to give them better learning experiences. They need to realize that life isn’t fair, and that just because one person got something doesn’t mean you will too.
But there are those days that we like to mess with our kids. If they ask why one of their siblings gets something or gets to go somewhere and they don’t, we now have a standard reply. We just say because we like your brother/sister better than you. Yes, probably not the best parenting skills, but some days it is just needed. It gives us a much needed laugh after dealing with all those whys. Plus, the look on their faces is just priceless
These banana muffins are my favorite way to eat bananas right now. I like these much better than eating bananas plain or eating bananas in oatmeal. Not that those ways are bad…I just prefer chocolate over them!
I also really like that these muffins don’t ask me the “why” questions…like why I am putting chocolate in my muffins or why I am buying more bananas. It’s the same reason that I like photographing food over kids. Food doesn’t move or talk back to you.
These chocolate banana muffins have chocolate chips inside and on top too. Any way I can incorporate more chocolate into my meals, I will.
I actually made these muffins twice in a few days time because my kids devoured them so quickly. The second time I had to put them on top of the refrigerator and tell everyone they were off limits until the next day. If a food has been “hidden” on the fridge, everyone knows they should leave it alone.
Doesn’t always keep them out of it…my son confessed later that he ate one of these for breakfast anyway because they were so good. I can’t blame him for getting one…they are so good!!!
