Banana muffins with chocolate, raspberries and almonds

Banana muffins with chocolate, raspberries and almonds

If you love banana bread, banana pancakes and all of this banana stuff, you will definitely love these muffins. I like that they are not overly sweet, so they’re delicious as breakfast or as a dessert. The combo of chocolate and raspberries works just perfectly. Chocolate adds a nice sweet taste and raspberries give a little extra sour kick. Pure perfection!
