After joining and having so much fun in the first round-up, I decided to join again for the second one. Maria and Rosie from Sweet & Simple Bakes gave us a recipe to try. It's Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins! Both my better half and I love this muffin very much. Yay!
The same as my first attempt, I baked only half recipe. The reason was because I have only mini oven (the big one hasn't fixed yet until now) and I am too lazy to make it in two batches. I modified the recipe by using chocolate flakes instead of chocolate chips since I didn't have any. Since my beloved wanted to have a strong banana flavor in the muffin, I used only two table spoons of chocolate flakes and some for sprinkling on top.
Photographing these muffins were hard, since my hubby couldn't wait patiently. He kept on asking when he can eat it. But don't worry, he is happy now and already ate half of them ;)
