Can I substitute the chocolate chips?

Yes! You can add white chocolate chips, or leave out the chocolate chips and add in mixed nuts instead. Pecan or walnuts will both be fine.

What if my bananas are not ripe?

You want to make sure your banana is ripe! If not you can bake it at 325 ° F for about 15 minutes to ripen it.

Can I use this batter for muffins?

Yes! Just add the batter to muffin liners and bake at 355°F for about 18-20 minutes.
