Chewy, lightly sweet banana muffins are studded with chocolate chunks and walnuts. These need no frosting, just a cup of coffee or tea for your morning break. If you want to make them free of all processed sugar, you can use cacao nibs instead of the chocolate chunks.
One of my favorite baking memories is my mom making banana cupcakes swirled with chocolate frosting. It was a fairly frequent occurrence, as we tended forget to eat the bananas on the counter, they would go brown, and she didn’t want to waste them. Perhaps we began to ignore them on purpose, knowing that she would transform them into something sweet, chewy, and delicious?
These muffins have that same satisfying, homey quality, that perfect combination of banana and chocolate, their delicate texture punctuated by chopped walnut pieces.
