Chocolate Chips Banana Muffin

Oh gosh!  Suddenly, I lost my words - how to start and what to write in this blog... (-_-)

Ok... to begin with... I present you this photo 
a beautiful muffin that I made a couple of nights ago.  This is the second time that the muffin I bake formed very nice and perfect volcanoes on surface.  I already put the recipe on previous entry which you can find it here.  This time chocolate chip is chosen and I added mashed banana in it.  I substituted fresh milk to uht coconut creme (delute with water 1:1) instead.  It turned out perfect either taste and texture.  Soft and fluffy even after 2 days at room temperature.
