I Made Banana Muffins Against My Will

I don't like bananas.

I realize that this confession is coming right on the heels of my "I won't eat apples" admission, so I'm sure you think I'm on some kind of anti-fruit crusade, but I promise, it's not like that.

I just don't like bananas. They're too squishy and stringy and....peely. I don't dig it.

But my pandemic brain decided that it wanted to make banana nut muffins, and I had a bag of nuts (a nut sack, lol), so I ordered bananas from the grocery people.

Then all the bananas turned brown, which I hear is a good thing for banana nut muffins but a bad thing for having six bananas on your counter.

All of a sudden, I had to hustle my ass to make a bunch of banana nut muffins that honestly, I didn't even want anymore. And I'm lazzzyyyy. I don't wanna make muffinnnnns. Leave me alooooone.

But I did it anyway. Because sometimes I'm responsible like that.

So I start making these muffins and I stir up all the dry ingredients and I mush the bananas and I cut up an extra banana because the It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken girl said to (and I wanted to get rid of as many icky bananas as possible), and then I go to add the nuts to the banana nut muffins and realize that the bag of walnuts I had was actually a bag of almonds.

Who's ever heard of a banana almond muffin? Nobody, that's who. They sound terrible.

But idiocy is the mother of invention or something, so I added chocolate chips instead. 

Ta da!

These are Chocolate and Banana Chunk Muffins.

They're plush and sweet and super duper banana-y.

Which would be great, except I don't like bananas.

Free to a good home.

If you would like to make these for yourself, which I don't necessarily recommend but also won't prevent, you can get the recipe here and then swap out the nuts for chocolate chips. I use the kind from Trader Joes, but in these perilous pandemic days, use whatever you've got.
