Super Banana Muffins

The most delicious banana muffin I’ve ever had.  Wowzer.  I think the secret is using 3 bananas in the recipe instead of 1 – which is usually standard in most banana muffin recipes I have seen.  They are best the day they are made still slightly warm.  I added mini chocolate chips to the topping of some of the muffins and my 4 year old ate THREE muffins in one sitting!
