Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

I came up with this variation on the traditional Banana Nut Muffins by adding cocoa powder and swapping out the nuts for white chocolate chips!

Who doesn’t end up with a few extra bananas laying around on the counter, overly ripe and past the point of anyone eating them? ¬†Well we almost always do!

These sweet little ditties are perfect for a grab and go breakfast or a after school snack. I packed these babies up and sent them in a “your mama misses your sweet face!” care package for one of my kiddos who is off at college!
