Wholewheat Chocolate Chips Banana Muffins
Please use standard measuring cup and teaspoon to measure all the ingredients (standard measuring cup of 200 ml / 8 oz)
Tip: An easy way to mash bananas is to peel, cut into chunks, and place in a zip-top plastic bag, leaving about 1/4" open at the top of the bag for air to escape. Gently knead/flatten/squash the banana chunks with your fingers.
