Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin

I took my mother's (grand mother's) recipe for banana bread recipe and modified it slightly. This recipe is so popular in my house that the kids ask for it as soon as they see a black banana in the house. My daughter came home today from a sleep over and that was the first question out of her mouth, are the muffins made yet. I hope you enjoy these as much as my crew does. I love them too. Enjoy!
