Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I had only 2 VERY ripe bananas sitting on my fruit plate and I didn't know what to do with them! I didn't have enough to make my usual banana bread so I start my search! Aha! Found this recipe and killed two birds with one stone...healthy & only calls for 2 bananas! SCORE! While I must confess they are not nearly as screamin good as the banana bread recipe I usually make, this recipe has much more healther ingredients with still a very good solid banana taste--oh and don't forget the chocolate chips!!! Yum-O! ENJOY!
