This recipe is from one of those little free booklets that they give out at the supermarket. I had some ripe bananas that I wanted to use up and these sounded perfect. They combine the appeal of chocolate with the goodness of bananas and whole wheat flour.

These muffins are so moist. DH said it needed more chocolate taste. Maybe some chocolate chips added to the batter would have been great. My son loved them. Thanks lrmgard :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game

These are pretty good. Easy to put together, but without a ton of flavor. I used skim milk and white wheat flour so I liked the nutritionals. Next time I think I'd add more sugar for more flavor. The banana chip on top was a nice touch, though.
