Black Bottom Banana Mini Cupcakes

I love trying new recipes for bananas, I seem to always have a couple of bananas just hitting beyond peak ripeness in my fruit bowl as well as bananas in my fridge and freezer.

So, I was excited when I learned about Chiquita Bananas’ Cooking Lab Recipe Contest running weekly through November 24th. Each week they reveal two ingredients which you can use, along with bananas, and any other ingredients you like to come up with a recipe and submit it for a chance to will various prizes including a chance to have your recipe featured in their banana recipe collection.

This past week when I saw the contest ingredients were cream cheese and chocolate chips, my mind immediately went to black bottom cupcakes. Black bottom cupcakes are a favorite of mine from childhood, and I thought bananas would be a nice addition.

Black Bottom Banana Mini Cupcakes is the recipe that I came up with, boy are these little cupcakes delicious! They are perfect as a morning treat along with a cup of coffee or are wonderful any time of day when you a craving a little something sweet!
