Banana Chocolate Chip Granola Muffins

Granola topping and a teensy bit inside the batter adds great texture to this breakfast muffin recipe!

I'm not particularly fond of bananas by themselves, but I love bananas in bready type foods like bread (LOL) and muffins. I love banana pancakes. I also love banana pudding. But anyways, banana muffins are definitely an acceptable way for me to eat bananas and I had saved this recipe from one of my Secret Recipe Club assignment blogs to make at some point (not for reveal day). I loved the idea of using granola as a topping and I loved having chocolate in the muffins even more!

I haven't posted muffins since January and funny enough, those muffins also had coarse sugar on top. I loved these Sugar-Crusted Chocolate Chip Muffins. Y'all gotta try them! I really want to make these Loaded Butterfinger Banana Muffins from Lynsey Lous soon because peanut butter and banana are so wonderful together.
