Children are little vortexes of energy. They drain energy from you to charge themselves, which requires copious amounts of food and snacks and baked goods. We have an endless supply of bananas in our house so on the rare chance some get overripe, I jump at the chance to make banana bread. Or in this case muffins! They are easy enough for the kids to help with and take half the time of a traditional banana bread. A humongous plus when you have two kids asking every 2 minutes if they are done yet.

This recipe contains pantry staples, which is always a plus. The recipe is pretty much fool-proof. Mix dry and wet ingredients separately and then combine. Add chocolate chips and bake.

Kids can help out a lot with this recipe. I had the girls help me out since cooking together is part of our homeschool curriculum.
