"These were fantastic! To satisfy a love of peanut butter with both chocolate and banana, we used peanut butter chips instead of the chocolate chips and they were great! I would definitely make these again!"

"I made these muffins last nite because I had over ripe bananas. The only thing I did different was using regular chocolate chips not the miniature. I have to say these are one of my favorite muffins. Will make alot in the future!!!"

"Love this recipe! Fast and simple to make, and as an added bonus I always have the ingredients on hand. It has plenty of chocolate flavor mixed in with the banana. I make it in a loaf pan and it takes a little over an hour to cook in my oven."
