I made these for a group of high school kids. They loved them, but I would like them better if I used only 1/2 bag of mini chips. Too much chocolate and not enough banana taste. But a recipe to keep.

can get any enough

Made for my friends as a after school snacks and kids fell in love with them and they could not get enough the kids keep ask me to make them again.

Delicious muffins!

I made these muffins with just a couple of changes. I used only two bananas (that I had frozen a couple of weeks earlier), and I used 1/2 cup margarine, and 1/4 cup butter flavor shortening. I didn't use an entire bag of the mini chips, but almost!! I used the white sugar Splenda, but only had regular brown sugar, which I used the same measurement. I thought they might turn out dry as a lot of mini muffins do, but these turned out absolutely wonderful. My kids loved them, and unfortunately - so do I. I've eaten half a dozen already!!! Yummm

These were very good but way too much butter.

Yummy Muffins!

Easy to make -- loved them -- made regular muffins instead of the minis. Would add more bananas as the chocolate over powers them a little. Got great reviews from all my friends!

Great for kids

Banana Mini Muffins

The children enjoyed the mini muffins because they were bite size and fun. The adults preferred the larger muffin that was used for part of their breakfast or used for a snack. It is a good recipe to use old bananas.

very tasty and easy ones

I made these muffins and liked them verymuch i added some cocoa powder, half cup milk and fewer chocolate chips because my daughter only likes brown cakes and muffins and they were delicious.Thanks.

Too Many Chips!

by A. Anne , SULLIVAN, ME on Apr. 2008

Don't get me wrong: I love chocolate! But with the addition of a whole 12-ounce bag of mini-chips, these muffins were like chips loosely connected by a little dough. If I make them again, I'll use about half as many chips.
