Banana cupcakes with semi-sweet chocolate chips, you can also use any chocolate you want just chopped it. And of course you can try adding chopped cashews or pistachio nuts if you want, to make it even more special and gives a crunchy texture.

  1. Banana bread is delicious and I know this would be too. I like how you can add chocolate chips for a different flavor.
