Banana Bread Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Muffins

I have a confession to make. I am a waster. I often buy produce and just can't eat it all before it goes bad or I end up forgeting about it. It's not something that I am proud of, and I am really trying to fix it.
I have been buying bananas like crazy recently. I have just retaken up running and have been getting charlie horses. It's been suggested that I eat bananas for their potassium hence the reason for the surplus in bananas.
It's really hard for me to eat bananas and I often end up with a pile of lovely brown ones.
Finally I decided to do something about it and I made these fun muffins. Eventually I will make them healthier by putting better ingredients in them. If you are not concerned with being super healthy then these are awesome! The chocolate and peanut butter chips really give it an extra oomph. 

The family loved these..even those who don't like banana bread
