"I made these twice this week. Delicious. I did find that one batch of the streusel topping was enough for two batches of muffins, though. Next time I will halve it."

"I skipped the streusel topping. Normally I'd sprinkle the tops of the muffins with raw sugar before baking, but this time I waited until the muffins had partially cooled and pressed in a few additional chocolate chips."

"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!!!"
