Banana and chocolate chip muffins

Please find this month's offering for the Sweet and Simple Bakes challenge.

Sweet and Simple Bakes is a great blog run by Rosie and Maria. It's designed for people who just love baking no matter how competant they feel and there is a challenge issued each month for all who would like to join in!

This is the second month that I've joined in and I love it as I'm being introduced to new recipes rather than just re-creating my own usual fare.

Last month was the double choc chip cookies which have gone down a storm.(Little One has asked me to make a batch for her to take to school on her birthday!) This month it's been Banana and choc chip muffins.

These, like the muffins have disappeared rather quickly in school lunch boxes and as pre sports practice snacks. I'm not a fan of cooked banana so can't vouch for their tastiness but the empty cake tin can! They were really easy to make and I loved the very generous amount of chocolate chips that went in them.

If you would like the recipe or to join in the fun with August's challenge then please click on the Sweet and Simple Bakes logo on the right.

My thanks go to the lovely Sal from Vi's pantry and for the great mug and cute tray which showed off the muffin to it's absolute best!!

Not sure what I am doing wrong, I thought I posted a comment already. Just wanted to say that the muffins are my idea of a lovely afternoon tea - especially if presented with such pretty servingware:)
