Reviews for Double Chocolate Banana Muffins
"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."
"This our family's favorite mffin recipe."

"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."

I put a couple in the freezer and when thawed they were just as good as freshly baked! Thank you for this wonderful recipe! I will use it again & again!!!"
"I made this in to a loaf; it made 1 standard size pan. I baked it for about 50 minutes. Fabulous!!"
"I made these muffins several times the first year the recipe came out in Taste of Home. They tasted and smelled great!. For some reason I stopped making them...but my husband, who hardly eats sweets, just asked me to make these again! He remembered them from years ago and says he liked them. I am so glad the recipe is still on here!!"

"Simple to put together; delicious to eat!"
"EXCELLENT! If you're bored of regular old banana bread, TRY THIS. The texture is amazing, and while the chocolate flavor is strong, the banana still has a great presence in this recipe. I make this in a loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes (depending on your oven). SO GREAT."
"My family of little girls loved these muffin. Very sweet. Very chocolatey. Moore chocolate flavor than banana flavor."

"Just served them to my husband warm...great reviews. Will do them again..Simple recipe.."
"I used half brown sugar and half splenda. Because veg. oil does not add flavor I used melted butter. I also used the large choc. chips for more choc. flavor. They turned out excellent!"
"Made this with my 11 year old son. He loved being able to help and they were so yummy. Moist and sweet :) Best way to use up your ripe bananas that are sitting on your counter."

"Easily the best way to use up ripe bananas. Do not hesitate to try this recipe."
"My daughter regularly makes this in an 8"square pan. Recently, she's had much success making this gluten free by substituting all-purpose gluten free flour and 1 tsp xanthan gum. Because we were out of bananas and couldn't find very ripe ones, she substituted 12 oz of baby food bananas. She's now done this in both regular and gluten free varieties. Both were fabulous!"
"My daughter has prepared this recipe many times in an 8"x8" pan. Our guests always rave about it; it's fabulous!"
"Very nice, good chocolate flavor. A nice change from banana bread!"
