Chocolate Banana Muffins

What do you carry when you go visit someone? I always bake something, I feel people love home baked stuff and it's made with a loads of love so it's always been a hit! I made these delicious muffins for a friends meet, my dear friend loves banana bakes and since I already took my best ever banana bread the last time I met her, this time I choose to bake these delicious chocolate and banana muffins. 

Banana Chocolate Muffins

Banana and chocolate always go well with each other, I love the banana and chocolate smoothie that I make often and these muffins with the same combo are so moist, so yum the taste is just extraordinary! Perfect for an evening snack.
