Fall baking is always wonderful! If you haven’t played with banana and pumpkin together yet, they pair quite wonderfully! Or in other words…YUM!

These mini muffins are a great way for the kids, or anyone to start the day. Simply add a cup of yogurt, and a glass of milk or juice and you’re set.

Because these muffins are made-from-scratch they have a wonderful not too sweet flavor. Not only do they have a wonderful flavor, the bananas and pumpkin are such a great way to start the day.

These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Mini Muffins also freeze well. So if you don’t need/want so many mini muffins at once, keep half and freeze half.

Enjoy my friends!

Simply scoop the dough into the mini muffin cups with either a spoon or a small scoop. Usually I use a small scoop, but today I used a spoon.

When the mini muffin cups are filled evenly, I like to add a few extra mini chocolate chips on the tops of the muffins before they are baked.

For the boys, it pulls them in but keeps them interested in eating a healthier mini muffin.

Always place your muffins on a rack of some kind to cool completely. Why? They cool much better and much more evenly.
