Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

In Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Lauren Heyn bakes up these yummy treats. Lots of banana flavor and plenty of chocolate chips "disguise" the whole wheat taste in these moist muffins. They're perfect for breakfast or an anytime snack.

"Moist and delicious. I did not have any wheat bran available so I substituted quick cooking oatmeal. Generous recipe, I was able to get 18 regular size muffins from the batch."
