Yum! I made these when I was out of eggs. I also ran out of all-purpose flour so I substituted whole wheat flour for all the flour and the result was a moist and delicious muffin with a good amount of chocolate and banana punch. I think these would be excellent with some toasted nuts or even some chocolate chips. Thanks!
