Banana and Raspberry Muffins

Yes, I know... these are just plain old banana muffins, and I'm sure everyone already has a favorite banana muffin recipe, and you really don't need to see mine. But I think these ones are worth a try. Hey, I might even convert a few people to MY banana muffin recipe. What makes these ones so good is the raspberries. The tartness of the raspberries with the sweet banana is truly heavenly. Served warm with butter.... oh gosh, I'll be right back....

Claire will only eat these muffins if they also have chocolate chips in them. That doesn't really make sense to me, if you like Banana Raspberry muffins WITH chocolate chips, shouldn't you also like them without? Who knows. We're having a bit of a stand-off, I'm not putting anymore chocolate chips in these muffins. Stay tuned to see who cracks first.
