Banana & Mini Chocolate Chip Streusel Muffins

Another keeper for a banana recipe!  Since most of us occasionally have  bananas unfit for human consumption….but, definitely okay to use in a recipe!!  So, here is a recipe that is perfect for using up bananas, and it’s easy to make.  I took 48 muffins to work and they all disappeared in a matter of 2 hours, AND, they came back looking for more!  So, I say this recipe is definitely a keeper.  In fact I have some bananas in the kitchen now, so, I just may make this recipe again today!  Hope you enjoy!
