Today, baked a few things - and what's better for Valentine's day than Banana Chocolate Chips muffins??!! :)

It's funny but I think I saw them this way on your blog. I make banana nut bread when we have bananas that go bad, but no one would eat it. But when I made them into muffins like you do, they disappeared so fast! It makes them look nicer not to have to try & cut through the chocolate chips and pecans to make slices too.
