banana chocolate chip muffins–a consolation prize for me and you.

I had big plans for a big dinner and a new recipe post tonight. But life happened.

I broke the right arm off my sunglasses this morning–which happened to be my good prescription sunglasses. And I forgot my real glasses at work. So I had to wear my prescription sunglasses with only one arm into the grocery store this afternoon. 

It was a good look, let me tell you.

The boys wanted the car cart, of course. I love that thing. And I hate that thing. 

On one hand, my kids will sit still while they’re in the car cart–cramming the free cookies into their mouths for 30 minutes or so. Love it. 

But on the other hand, it’s hard to navigate the aisles of the grocery store feeling like you’re pushing the Titanic over a sheet of ice. Hate it. 

So anyway. I was pushing that car cart around the store, gathering all my ingredients for tonight’s dinner–working hard to read the labels with my one-armed-prescription-sunglasses. 

And of course we crashed into an endcap. 

An endcap full of red wine bottles. 

And we shattered a good dozen (maybe more) bottles of red wine all over the floor by the meat section. So sorry, meat section. My bad.

Aannnnd I called the ball, right then and there.

I offered to pay for the wine–they wouldn’t let me. God bless them. And then I helped the store clerk clean up all the broken glass with my one-armed sunglasses still hanging off my face. 

We circled back to the rotisserie chickens like that was our plan all along. Dinner is served. Boom.

So here’s our consolation prize–a banana chocolate chip muffin recipe sure to make everything better. I’ve been making these for awhile. My kids love them. I love them. You’ll love them. Get after it–they taste great with a big glass of red wine. Ha.

Banana Chocolate Chip Mini-Muffins


  1. 1 cup almond butter
  2. 4 eggs
  3. 2 overripe bananas
  4. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 1/4 salt
  7. 1/3 cup chocolate chips

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease your muffin pan (I use coconut oil spray). 

Throw everything except the chocolate chips into your food processor. And blend. 

Fold in your chocolate chips. 

Pour into a mini-muffin tin. Bake for 15 minutes. Dive in. 

This recipe usually makes 20 mini-muffins. 

I’m eating one wearing my one-armed-prescription-sunglasses right now. Yum.
