Jumbo Chocolate and banana muffins
I have been baking and cooking quite a lot lately, a lot more than usual. My husband is actually loving it because he is getting to try all of the new dishes and baking goodies I have been making up!! I guess a kind of perk when you like cooking a baking so much
These jumbo muffins can be made in a matter 5 minutes. I actually made them because I wanted to have something for the mornings to come where I could just grab and be full for a little while. These jumbo muffins, with a giant glass of milk, and you are good to go….
You can put some walnuts in the batter or even some chocolate chips if you like. I thought there were good just like this but the sky is the limit with these ones…
I was going to post another chocolate recipe next but maybe I will go ahead and post the honey sesame chicken I made today in the crock pot that was superb!
Until my next post,
These are jumbo size muffins but you can do regular size muffins if you like. I also placed the jumbo muffin pan on another jumbo muffin pan before placing it in the oven to make sure the muffins didn’t get burnt on the bottom. I trick I learn over the years :-)
