Valentine treats don't have to be all about candy. Here are some healthier treats with a bit of chocolate and an easy trick to shape these muffins into hearts for your sweeties.

What You'll Need

How We Did It

Valentine Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Muffins
Line your muffin tin with the paper liners. Rip or cut tin foil into aproximately 4x4 inch squares. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Ripping tinfoil is fun, but rolling it up into a ball is even more fun. My son loved this step.

Insert a ball of foil into the side of each muffin cup, between the paper liner and the pan, to create a heart shape.

Mash the bananas. This is almost as much fun as the tinfoil. Cream together butter and sugar, then blend in eggs. Add bananas, water, soda, salt and baking powder to blend. Add flour.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes. I let the muffins cool in the pans for about 10 minutes to keep their shape.

This looks fun and easy--cant wait to try it! Love the heart-shaped muffin idea, which could obviously be used with virtually any type of muffin recipe, even ones with out choc chips. :-)
