Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin

Call it a Banana muffin? It’s a failure. Call it a Chocolate Chip Muffin? Its an absolute success because it’s so chcolatey. So, Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin? Uhhh… Not quite. More like Chocolate Chip muffin this time. I guess i added too much Chocolate Chips into the batter. I like Banana Chocolate Chip muffin to havechunksof banana and some small amount of chocolate chips scattered around. I thought my bananas werent too mashed at first. I was expecting some chunks of bananas in the muffins but i guessed they were still too “mashed??’ Next time, I am going to up the bananas and throw in some additional sliced and unmashed bananas into the batter. I dont know if i’ll achieve my chunky bananas texture but i guess i’ll jst give it a go. If anybody knows, please let me know! The muffins were pretty moist even though there’s no sourcream/yoghurt/milk in the recipe. The Chocolate chip taste was too overpowering. But the good thing about it was that the chocolate chips were uniformly scattered in the muffin instead of sinking to the bottom. I mix the chocolate chips with a good amount of flour and folded the chocolate chips together with the flour into the rest of batter. I guess this trick works almost everytime.
