“Over-ripe bananas lend flavor and moisture to these lovely breakfast muffins while the mini-chocolate chips sprinkled across the top entice the most bleary-eyed slow-poke into fully waking up! Assemble dry ingredients the night before, to speed up the process in the morning. *My dad used to wake my five brothers and me up by hollering up the stairs every morning, "Daylight in the swamp!" OR "The swampsoggins are out!"....we never did see a swampsoggin!!!*”
