Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


Years ago, I spent a summer working in Banff, Alberta.  Quite often, on my way to work, I would stop in at a local coffee shop called Evelyn’s and pick up one of their Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.  They were delicious!  Once I returned home that fall, I was on the hunt for a recipe that would compare.  I found one that even boasted the title of being Evelyn’s Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins!  For the life of me I can’t remember where I found the recipe, since that was about 10 years ago!

Are you ready for the recipe?  Here is my recipe adaptation:
