ChocoBanane Power Muffin

She sets out to make her usual Banana Bread and ends up with these amazing protein rich gluten free muffins!

Every time I step foot in my kitchen to bake or cook you never actually know what will happen. I often do have a plan. Once I get started though, you never know.

Here’s how that very hefty thought process went…Should I put chocolate chips in this time? Well, CHILD A prefers this without chocolate chips, but she likes chocolate, so…

Anyways, reached out to a friend to see if she had a recipe. She did, sent it to me and then I changed nearly the whole thing. LOL. We had a good laugh over that. Many of my recipes are SHIFTED…

This one is really delish. Its a blend of banana bread and chocolatey muffins.
