These muffins appear to be predictable, run of the mill chocolate chip muffins. Golden on the outside, polka dots on the inside. But after just one bite you'll realize that you're in for a delicious and nutritious surprise. Those chocolate chips aren't chocolate chips at all, they're watermelon seeds! Roasted watermelon seeds taste more nutty than fruity, and they are the perfect compliment to sweet banana muffins.
