Banana Bread Muffins with Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chips

I found a recipe online that called for cinnamon chips in banana bread. I was so excited to make the recipe! Alas, it was not to be. I couldn't find cinnamon chips in the two stores I went to. So, I bought peanut butter chips and improvised.

I really enjoyed the mix of pb & chocolate in banana bread. However, in the long run, I think I would just use peanut butter in the batter and add the chocolate chips in. NEXT time! :)
