Extra Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins!

"This is an adaptation of a recipe from another site. It's called "Extra Banana Muffins" because it has a lot more banana in it than most recipes- 2 1/3 cups! it smells really good while its baking. (Note: chilling batter and filling the cups to the top is a must if you want dome tops!)"

    I didn't see a big difference putting the muffin dough in the fridge but it's true that it can be great to come home and just take the bowl out of the fridge and bake muffins in just a few minutes. The taste is really good even though I forgot to add the chocolate chips. My son was disappointed lol The texture is a little bit too dense for my taste. Thanks VeggieHippie :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game

    So delicious! I made the dough in the morning, covered it with plastic wrap and left it in the fridge when I went to work, and came home at the end of the day to make the muffins for dinner. It was such an easy way to have fresh muffins without having to put in a lot of effort right after work!

    These are amazing muffins. I made them for the little ones (toddlers 2 and under) so I put them in little mini muffin tins! (great for little hands!) It made 48 mini muffins. the first batch of 24 took 15 mins at 350, and the second 19 they were a little fuller (trying to use up my batter) I wasn't sure at first because I have never made banana anything with cinnamin and nutmeg! but it was a delightful surprise. I will keep this recipe forever and most likely my kids will end up making it for their kids!! I think it will become a weekly baking staple in this house! Thanks for an amazing recipe to add to my collection!

    A perfect way to use up those brown bananas. More important, a perfect way to use up a lot of brown bananas. Most recipes only call for 2-3 bananas. I used 5 for this recipe. I was in a hurry and admit, didn't let the batter sit before baking the first batch. The second batch, I only have one pan, rose much higher. So, if you have the time definately let the batter sit. I did not eat any, but both my husband and 13 year old niece raved about these saying they are very good. My husband states they have a stronger than normal banana taste, which was fine by him and the chocolate chips made them feel like more of a treat.
