Simply delicious. This muffin is full of flavor, moist, soft and incredibly yummy while still warm and the chips are still warm. Really, whats not to love! Made for PAC, Spring 2014.

Awesome muffins!!!! I not normally a fan of banana cake or muffins but happened to have some small bobby bananas well past their use by date and didn't want to throw them out. I loved the description you used in your intro though expected I'd need way more sour cream but had everything on hand. Perfect recipe if you don't want heaps of leftovers. Btw these made 15 mini muffins

BY FAR the best muffins I have ever made. We usually make a batch of muffins and they sit on the counter for a week or so... these ones were gone within an hour. I Sprinkled a tiny bit of brown sugar on top before we baked them. ABSOULTELY delicious.
