Whew! Now you may think that is a pretentious title for this recipe. But dear readers, it’s true. These banana, walnut and chocolate chip muffins are oh so delightful and oh so delicious.  They are the the perfect treat for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Or any time you need a little pick-me-up. In fact, I could eat them all day. 

Banan Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffins!

Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffins!

After a bit of a break from baking, I’ve recently gotten back into it with a vengeance. There really is nothing quite so wonderful as the aroma of sweet things baking in your oven.

Mmmmm....

Mmmmm….

Or that moment when you open a piping hot muffin, fresh from the oven, watch the steam circle rise out of it, and then pop it in your mouth… Yes, I know you know what I’m talking about. And these muffins are a good a reason as any to put your apron on, make a mess in the kitchen and fire up that oven! 

Oh so good!

Oh so good!

And the great thing about these muffins is that they are really, really good for a few days afterwards too! They are nice and moist and soft and so flavorful…
