"These are SO good! Easy to put together and bake up beautifully. They're dense and moist and you can really taste the banana and the chocolate. I didn't make the optional streusel topping but they really didn't need it. Great for breakfast, lunch, snack, or anytime! These are a keeper and I will definitely make these often! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful muffin recipe!"

"My kids (11 & 8) made these pretty much independently. Texture is fantastic - not dry at all and the bananas make it really sweet and perfect. Yum!"

"Just have to add one more rave review. Absolutely delicious. Doesn't really need the streusel topping. I made mini muffins and they are perfect for popping in your mouth on the way out the door in the morning. Yum."

"I made these muffins today as a coming home gift for our neighbours, very good. They only thing I changed is I didn't use all the streusel topping (only used about 1/3) as I thought it was too much. I made them a little smaller and got 15 muffins from the recipe."

"Really nice muffins. I increased the mashed banana to 1 1/2 cups and omitted the streusel topping After baking the muffins while still warm I brushed the tops generously with melted butter and sprinkled them with sugar. This worked well and added an additional extra moist slightly sweet touch to the muffins. I made 9 large muffins in Parchment liners and baked them for 24 minutes. I had no mini chocolate chips so I used regular SS chocolate chips. This is a keeper recipe for us. Great use of my frozen bananas."

"Absolutely delicious! I made these with the streusel topping and they were heavenly! My only change would be to halve the streusel recipe as I had a lot remaining after I'd topped all the muffins. I think this is my new favorite way to use up ripe bananas!"
