The very best whole wheat banana chocolate chip muffin recipe!
My friend shared this whole wheat banana chocolate chip muffin recipe with me years ago and I have been hooked on them ever since! My kids love to eat these muffins for breakfast, after school snacks and in their school lunches.
These muffins are quick and easy to make, fairly healthy thanks to the whole wheat, which makes me happy! They are also super easy to make a large batch to freeze for later….and my ENTIRE family LOVES them. So, basically just a win all around!
How To Freeze Muffins
This whole wheat banana chocolate chip muffin recipe is perfect for freezing! I like to double the recipe and then freeze half of them for later!
To freeze these muffins, just place the cooled baked muffins into a ziplock freezer bag and then throw them (or I guess gently place them….either way works 😉 ) into the freezer. That’s it!
When you are ready to eat the muffins, take them out of the freezer and thaw on the counter. You can even just pop one into the microwave for a minute if you don’t want to wait for them to thaw. (this is my kids’ fave trick!)
