Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

This is the recipe that my mom always makes. It's the one her mom always made. It's hands down the favorite banana bread that I have tried. And to me, banana bread isn't real unless it had chocolate chips in it. Don't bother serving me any that is plain or with nuts. It just has to have the chocolate. The following is her exact recipe. I made a big batch last weekend and have given a bunch away and eaten quite a few myself.

1 c. butter
3 c. sugar
4 eggs

Cream well.

Add:
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 c. mashed bananas
1 tsp. salt

(Will appear pretty runny.) Then add:
4 c. flour alternately with 1/2 c. buttermilk
(make buttermilk with regular milk by putting 1 Tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice in the milk and stirring)
1 Tbsp. vanilla

Pour into well-greased bread pans. 2 large or 4 small or 24 muffins. Bake @ 350 degrees - large for 1 hour, small for 50 minutes, muffins 40-50 min. Check with toothpick for doneness.

I made chocolate chip banana muffins as well this week! Yummy!

However, I used Betty's (Crocker, that is) recipe. I'm not sure what recipe my mom used because mine turned out differently. Still very good though :)
