Chocolate Banana Muffins

One of my daughters favorite muffins is this banana chocolate chip muffin.  I've been making them for her for years.  This muffin tastes very similar to that muffin.  That means she loved them.  They are moist and delicious with a definite banana flavor and a chocolaty finish.  The sugar on top adds a little crunch and added sweetness. 

This recipe made a perfect dozen muffins and they freeze very well.  This is another great recipe to have on hand, you can make them on a free day and then have them for those hectic mornings.  Enjoy!
