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!!!

Caramel Mocha Chip Banana 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 tons 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, so they are the perfect pick-me-up for anytime of day!
What are you waiting for? You definitely need these. Stat!!!!

Oh yum! I love the sound of this! Thanks so much for linking up to Tuesday Talent Show! I would love to have you stop by and link up again tomorrow with more great projects!
I finally got a chance to make these, delicious! Unfortunately, I couldn't manage to find caramel bits (I looked at 3 stores too!), so I substituted toffee pieces. Hopefully caramel bits will be a little more popular as we get into fall more and I can try this again in all of its glory.
Very yummy, I'll have to throw some in the freezer so I don't eat them all in this weekend. And a perfect excuse to brew a fresh pot of coffee! The pooch also enjoyed it as the extra bananas were perfect for creating a special weight watchers treat for her. Thanks for all the great recipes!

Looks delish. I could use one right now please, with a cup of coffee (with extra flavored creamer please). K, thanks.
I'll only eat them green too. But I love banana bread, muffins etc. Can't wait to try these!

These really do look amazing! What great flavours as well - banana, caramel, chocolate and coffee - yum! I'd love it if you would link them up at the Let's Do Brunch linky tomorrow on The 21st Century Housewife.
Coffee, now THAT is an ingredient I LOVE adding to pretty much everything. I am the only person on the planet who prefers brown, bruised, beaten up bananas. It's true.
