banana nut chocolate chip muffins

I love bananas, I love chocolate, and I love the idea of something quick and relatively healthy in the mornings (healthier than skipping breakfast atleast). With work beckoning at really early hours some months, I need something easy to eat that will keep me full until lunch or the next time I get a chance to eat. I made these banana nut chocolate chip muffins a few weeks ago and took some into work for my team. They were a hit and I can't wait to make them again! The recipe is similar to my banana bread recipe I've posted about before, but these include a few additional ingredients.

Recipe take from (click for link).
3 medium very ripe bananas
1 egg
13 cup low-fat buttermilk or 13 cup milk
12 cup granulated sugar
12 cup brown sugar
1 12 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 -3 tablespoons chocolate chips
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly coat 12 muffin tin liners with cooking spray and place in muffin tin.
In large bowl, mash bananas with fork.
Whisk in egg, milk, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.
In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
Add flour mixture to banana mixture and combine well.
Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Spoon equal amounts of batter into 12 muffin cups.
Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Allow to cool slightly in pan, then remove to wire rack.
