Everything’s right and good about these muffins. The crumbly, crunchy topping gives the right amount of texture as you bite into the muffin and sink your teeth into the sweet combination of banana, cinnamon and chocolate. Chocolate and cinnamon has always been a combination that I’ve loved. I think it started out from my grandma speckling her cinnamon rollsĀ  with sweet chocolate chips instead of raisins for us kids. And the love has never stopped!
