Chunky Monkey Banana Muffins

I've finally perfected my banana muffins! I am very picky about muffins so please don't think this is just another boring, run-of-the-mill banana muffin. Not only do these taste amazing, but they also use my secret baking ingredient, buttermilk. Enjoy!

    1. Glad you enjoyed them. My banana supply in my freezer is getting out of control again, so I think I'll have to bake up a batch this weekend!
