Step 4: If you do not want chocolate chips in your muffins, you can skip this step. What I did was to make half and half.

I added half of the batter to the mini muffin tin, then folded chocolate chips into the remaining half of the batter.

Step 6: bake the banana muffins at 350 degrees for 11-14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow the muffins to cool 2-3 minutes in the pan, then use a butter knife to gently remove them from the pan and onto a wire cooling rack.
