I realized I haven't baked anything in awhile and I had to use up a couple of very ripe bananas. I came across a Banana-Walnut Muffins recipe from Rachel Ray's magazine. Here is the official recipe since I did change it up with what I had. Overall the muffins were good, moist and I even like the walnuts in it. I don't typically add nuts to many baked goods but the walnuts were good in these muffins. I added in the chocolate chips because any baked banana goodies I make has to have chocolate of course. I brought these banana walnut chocolate chip muffins to work to share with my lucky coworkers. Enjoy!

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, remaining ½ cup sugar, baking powder, salt, remaining ½ teaspoon cinnamon, walnuts and chocolate chips.
Fill each lined muffin cup with batter. Sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top.
