Personal Notes:
This was a recipe given to me by Allyson Stevenett who was my boss at the Stevenett Malt Shoppe in Provo, UT. Her parents owned this little burger joint that was pretty popular with the college students. The recipe was to make a loaf of banana bread with frosting, but I put a twist on it and make it into mini muffins with mini chocolate chips minus the frosting. But it is definitely delicious made into a loaf with frosting on top minus the chocolate chips. Either way, you can't go wrong. :)
