Chocolate Chip Banana Cupcake

a1angiem's picture
My kids never complain about banana cupcakes, especially if there are chocolate chips involved. These wonderfully chocolate individual cakes are perfect for the lunch box or as an afternoon snack. Adding the chips to the top of each cupcake helps stretch them further and makes sure they are evenly distributed. Boy, they smell really good when they come out of the oven!
