My 3 Monsters: Banana Cinnamon Chip Muffins

Banana Cinnamon Chip Muffins

I've mentioned before that I made quite a splash on the 1983 New Mexico baking scene with my famous banana bread.  It's no big deal, but you're pretty lucky to know me.  Just sayin'.  It's not every day an award-winning baker shares her signature recipe. 

All kidding aside, I had some over ripe bananas sitting on my counter top the other day so I simply HAD to chef up some banana bread.  I hate waiting the 45 minutes it takes for banana bread to bake so I opted for muffins instead.  On a whim I threw in a couple handfuls of cinnamon chips to spice things up.  One word:


These were maybe the best muffins I have made in a loooong time.  See that sugary-crust on the top?  And the little pockets of sweet cinnamon?  Heaven. Around our house muffins beat cupcakes as baked snack of choice any day.  It's a chilly, rainy day here in Arizona so a fresh batch may be in order this afternoon.

  1. OK. This is the 2nd recipe today that I've read that uses cinnamon baking chips. What in the heck are they? Apparently, I've been living outside of the US for too long!

  2. I've never heard of cinnamon baking chips. Of course, I know I'll love any kind of baking chips. :) Your muffins look delish!

  3. I've been buying cinnamon chips to put in my oatmeal cookies for several years. They don't carry them at every store though. I can almost always find them at WalMart. They're super delicious!!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
