    I want to make these! Banana chocolate chip is one of my favorite muffins. I can only imagine how amazing that combo is with dulce de leche! YUM!

  2. Becky @ Project Domestication

    This is a win-win-win combo. And I’m with you, that brand of dulce de leche is awesome.

    I need those bright, cheery baking cups in my life.

  3. Annie @ Annie's Noms

    These sound amazing, I love banana and chocolate so why not add some dulce de leche too?! I will definitely be making these! 😀

  4. Jessica@ Stuck On Sweet

    What an amazing recipe! Can’t wait to try these and to visit your friend’s etsy shop – adorable!

  5. Julie @ Table for Two

    these look so good!! i love the dulce de leche in these – very unique and a great addition! they’re so puffy and look so moist 🙂

  6. Francesca

    These sound lovely, and the baking cupcakes are lovely too. Please could I ask where you got them from? Thank you.

  7. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel

    I honestly sometimes hope for overripe bananas to bake with but it rarely happens anymore with 3 hungry kids around! These are the perfect way to wake up and get going. I might have to hide a few bananas to make something soon. 🙂

  8. Kare @ Kitchen Treaty

    Okay so I was already totally down with chocolate and banana muffins for breakfast, but dulce de leche?! Whole new level. These look divine (and those muffin cups are so cheery and cute).

    I love the use of the baking cups. I have tons of them that I’ve ordered from Pick Your Plum where they’re considered nut cups. I’ve never used them for anything, but had to have them!!! I like the idea of baking with them. So much prettier and sturdier than regular cupcake liners. The muffins sound delicious. I already love chocolate and bananas together and dulce de leche can only make them better.

    These look delicious! I also love the muffin cups. Can’t wait to check out the rest of the stuff in the etsy shop. Seems like I’m always in the process of planning the next birthday party!

    Sugar, chocolate, and butter. Perfect breakfast food. 🙂 Are those muffin cups paper or some other kind of material?

  12. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    I love the pretty yellow cups, Jenny! And all those mini choc chips! I love banana bread in any way, shape or form..and with dulce de leche, how delish!

  13. Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Baking Queen

    I love anything with dulce de leche but add bananas and I am all over it! Beautiful photos and lovely recipe as always Jenny!
