Banana Walnut Chocolate Chunk Muffins

I wish you all muffins of comfort for the adventures and challenges of a new week ahead.

I love chunky, hearty muffins and these fit the bill.  No refined sugars & healthy fats make these something you can feel nice about putting in your body.

This recipe yields a soft, dense, and super flavorful treat reminiscent of a banana bread.
