One of my favourite muffins, sweeter than most breakfast muffins but still a long way from being cupcakes in disguise which too many muffins are. NOTE: I have adjusted the quantity of flour thantks to my reviewers.

These were AMAZING! The muffins were huge and moist with a delicious chocolatey flavor. I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/8 tsp. nutmeg, which seemed to complement the flavors well.

These are scrumptious! I halved the recipe and it still made 7 BIG muffins. Next time I will half it again and fill all 12 cups. I used 2 ripe bananas and substituted milk mixed with lemon juice for the Buttermilk. (Use 1T. lemon juice per 8oz. milk and allow to sit for a few minutes.) They turned out beautifully! I will be making these again!

These muffins were delicous!!! My kids loved them and they were gone in one day. They turned out big and moist and I love the banana and chocolate together. Thank You so much.
