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 the muffins before and after baking. It took about 20 minutes at 400F to get them ready. These were simple to make and super yummy.

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 :-)
