Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

These muffins came out perfectly moist with just the right amount of sweetness!  I’ve been on a banana frenzy lately and ended up with three perfectly browned small bananas by the end of the week and couldn’t resist wanting to bake with them.  I chose muffins over banana bread only because bread takes a little longer and I was one sugar craving, tired, and hungry lady!
