Colombian Chocolate Chunk and Banana Muffins

These Colombian Chocolate and Banana Muffins are rich and moist, making them a perfect dessert. I used Chocolate Luker, a bittersweet Colombia chocolate, but you can use another chocolate, if you prefer.

My husband enjoyed these muffins, but my 6 year old said that they were to rich for him. All that chocolate makes these muffins a chocolate lover’s dream.

Buen provecho!

    You are such a bad girl to tease this way…the least you could do is send some to a non baker…..God they look good.

    I am so glad to have come across your blog…..I would ask my mom, but she doesn’t measure anything, which makes it impossible to make her recipes.

    Now I found this recipe but I live in the United Kingdom (I use metric units instead of imperial though) and I was reading a conversion table and it said one cup was 200g!
    I was quite disturbed by the amount so I only put in what you would say was about 1 and a half cups and they still tasted good.
    Am I right in thinking that there was 400g of sugar in the recipe?
    Sorry if I’m wrong.
