Banana Bread Muffins

Banana Bread is one of the american pastries that you don’t find in Europe. A fact that is not quite understandable to me since itstexture is simply amazing - and the chocolate and banana taste is not comparable to any other food. Delicious.
I tried banana bread at home to see if my friends and family like it. Instead of making an entire loaf of banana bread I decided to divide the batter into smaller portions and make medium sized muffins. Normally I am not much of a banana fan but banana bread tastes heavenly!

Have a wonderful day,
