These are very tasty, but why is there such a huge amount of chocolate chips? Dial back the amount to perhaps 3/4 C, maybe even 1/2 C and the wonderful mocha flavour will come through perfectly.

Boy were these good! The only thing I did different was I used" mini" chocolate chips. They are very moist and addicting! Bet you can't eat just one:}

I made these yesterday for Bible study and boy were they well received! Next time I will use a stronger coffee to enhance that flavor & might substitute white chocolate chips and banana flavoring... made 23 instead of 24 and used about 1-1/2 cup mashed bananas. Thanks for sharing!

Looks like the same recipe as the Banana-Coffee Cake Muffins made at Kathleen's Bake Shop (known now as Tate's Bake Shop) in Southampton, NY. I have the recipe book from this bakery and have been making these muffins for my family for over 10 years. They are great!!
