When life gives you ripe bananas – make muffins! These Jumbo Chocolate Chip Toffee Banana Muffins are incredibly moist and just loaded with flavor! Chocolate and banana goes together so well in these delicious muffins!
I’m a sucker for breakfast. It’s been my favorite meal every since I was a kid. I like breakfast so much I’ll eat it any time of day: brunch, brinner, bressert…all good! Muffins are one of those treats we don’t have for breakfast all too often but are much appreciated when we do. Today I’m sharing these Jumbo Chocolate Chip Toffee Banana Muffins which, if you happen to have a few ripe bananas lying around, the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
Ripe bananas prompt all sorts of delicious baking in our house like these Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cookies or this Chocolate Banana Applesauce Cake. Bananas add loads of nutritional value as well as a ton of moisture to baking recipes – they’re kind of awesome like that.
I’ve got this jumbo muffin pan that doesn’t see a lot of action and I frequently feel sorry for it. Basically, it guilt trips me into preparing jumbo muffins or cupcakes. I know. I’m a push over. That being said, I’ve yet to regret making any muffin or cupcake jumbo size, like ever. These muffins included.
Three whole bananas are used and honestly, what better use for those over ripe bananas than these jumbo muffins? I loaded these banana muffins with chocolate chips and Heath Toffee Bits for an irresistible flavor that works for breakfast, snack or dessert!
These muffins are going to disappear fast but if you’ve got a bunch of bananas to use up, make two or more batches and freeze. These muffins freeze beautifully! Save a few for an after-school snack – my boys love them!
Feel free to mix and match add-ins to this recipe – I do it all the time 🙂 Butterscotch or peanut butter chips make a delicious alternative to the chocolate chips!
