Banana And Choco-Chips Muffins

This post got a bit delayed. Actually these muffins were made by my "Almost Eight" (as she keeps reminding me) daughter in mid March and the reason for this delay is that she insisted on writing this post herself. As you all (who have patience to follow my posts) know that March was Donna Hay month (check here and here) and I was going through Zoe's post about the said Banana Chocchips Muffins, Saee (my daughter) also saw the post and immediately got charged up, seeing Zoe's kid doing the stuff, and insisted on making the same muffins by herself.

                                                               ( The Teddy got burnt :( )

Another reason for delay is that we went for a much needed vacation to Mahabaleshwar and we had a blast there. But that also meant no net connection and the post kept on postponing. Anyways now that we are back ( & rejuvenated) I m planning on baking up a storm as we have two birthdays this week and also I picked up loads of Strawberries and Mulberries at Mahabaleshwar :).
Here are some of the pics.

Now I'll hand over to Saee.

Hi everybody,
My name is Saee and I will be 8 years old this week. I made banana muffins with my mother and we had lots of fun making them. Here is how I made it.
First I mashed bananas.

Then I mixed everything in a bowl.

Mom gave me chocolate chips and I added them to the bowl and also my mashed banana.

 Then we put everything in muffin cups and baked it.

It was really fun and I want to do it again.

Bye bye,

 Adapted from Zoe
Banana Choco-chips Muffins
