This recipe is for my Banana Chocolate Bread recipe from my book, but instead of making it into 2 loaves as the recipe calls for, I made it into muffins, and renamed it the name you see here, because the cooking times & temperatures are different. The recipe makes about 24 to 36 muffins, but I shared with 2 of my neighbors and they were very happy.
PREHEAT OVEN TO 375 DEGREES F.Spray muffin Tins with cooking spray or use cupcake liners. You will need about 3 muffin tins with 12 cups each. set aside.
