College Care Package Recipe – Simple Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Add a little something sweet to your kids college care package!

College Care Package Simple Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin RecipeKnowing what to include in the care packages I send to my daughter at college can be a little confusing. What I do know is that she likes when I include something I’ve baked along with the list of indispensable items she forgot at home. So for this years first care package I’ve included a batch of Simple Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. They’re the perfect treat to bridge the gap between “I miss home” and “I’m so glad not to be at home.”
