This is another scrumdeliciousness that my sister and I made this Mother’s Day weekend. She loves my banana bread so I decided to make it for her and take it up a notch. We made some Dark Chocolate Banana Muffins and they were delicious!
I may have taken a few days off from the blog for Mother’s day but I didn’t take any time off from the kitchen. I love teaching my sister to cook and bake. Although, it can be a little challenging to teach a moody teenager to cook. She did very well though. She actually made the Coconut Cheesecake (with my supervision.)
We were busy this weekend and I will share all the stuff with made with you.
The muffins came out perfectly, so soft and moist! Dark chocolate and banana is a great flavor combination. These muffins can also be easily made into a bread. Just pour the batter into a 9-inch bread pan and enjoy.

- ¾ cup of light brown sugar
- 3 eggs, room temperature
