Chocolate Glazed Banana Muffins

Incredibly gentle and soft chocolate muffins with bananas are so attractive with their delicious look. Pastry rises well in the oven and it turns out very light and aerated inside. Thanks to the harmonious combination of chocolate and bananas, the muffins are surprisingly tasty and fragrant. For the recipe, I recommend using squashy slightly darkened bananas. They are the most delicious and fragrant, so ideal for such pastry.
