I get very nostalgic when I think about these chcocolate chip banana muffins. This is one recipe I made over and over again as a teenager. Back then there was a time I ate these muffins about every day. I love the combination of chocolate and banana. That is also one of the reasons why I once invented a chocolate banana cake for my birthday. But be aware, if you don’t like this flavor combo, this recipe is probably not for you. But if you do like it, these muffins come together within minutes and only need about 20-25 minutes in the oven. So if you have some ripe bananas you wish to use, this is perfect. Make some super delicious chocolate banana muffins. You will only have to wait about half an hour to bite into these!
These cranberry orange muffins are the perfect start of a winter day. They are not overly sweet and have just a little bit of glaze, lots of cranberries and a soft dough in the center. I got so excited when our local produce owner started selling fresh cranberries. They are really hard to come by in Germany. He said he would have them around for a while, so I immediately knew I was going to make these muffins. Since my blueberry muffins are a hit every year, I wanted to create a winter version of this beloved muffin. Of course you are free to make them without the glaze, they taste wonderful just as is.
Triple chocolate muffins are a chocoholic’s dream come true. There is no other way of saying this. I am a chocoholic and I will never understand why some people say they eat less chocolate in summer because it is warm. Seriously? I don’t get what the wheather has to do with anything. I will eat chocolate, all the time. I love chocolate. Always. Period.
And I was craving chocolate when we moved from the north of Germany to the south. I don’t know, unpacking boxes, scrubbing the old apartment, decorating the new apartment, whatever the cause was, I wanted something very chocolaty, desparately. And then I thought of this recipe I had seen some time ago. If you don’t know the blog Bake to the roots, check it out, it is one of my favorite blogs.
Yeah, I know, there are so many blueberry muffin recipes out there. I know. But this is my favorite and it is so simple. Please bear with me and make a dozen, or two. Because they are full of this blueberry goodness, and they just make you happy. I promise.
