"Delicious! I made them as jumbo muffins and I got 7 from the recipe. I, too, used regular chocolate chips because I didn't have any miniature chips and I used about 1-1/2 cups banana because I had two overrippe bananas on the counter!"

"We really like this recipe! I take it to brunches or just make it for the family. We have a severe peanut allergy so i substitute soy or almond butters. Sunbutter as a substitute will turn them green.... just in case anyone wonders!"
