Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Audrey and Les were fans of sports, swimming, fishing, and the outdoors. A cottage on Loon Lake outside of Haliburton, Ontario was their favourite vacation spot. They would rent a cottage for one or two weeks every summer. When the opportunity arose to purchase one of the cottages, they took it!

Growing up, I spent a lot of time at our family cottage. I loved to go fishing with Grandpa and play games with my brother and the kids from the other cottages on the property.

Mom and Taylor and I spent some time at the family cottage this winter. We played board games, built a snow golem, and had a bonfire with the neighbours. We also uncovered several new recipes in Grandma’s handwriting!

I baked the chocolate chip banana muffins last weekend. They were just okay! I should have used more (or more ripe) bananas because the banana flavour didn’t come through.

The recipe has a note from Grandma that she didn’t need all 25 minutes to cook her muffins, but I sure did! I checked them at 20 minutes and they were still completely wet! Next time I might try checking them at 23 minutes (instead of waiting the whole extra five) because they did turn out a little dry.
