banana-choclate muffins

I am not fond of bananas but i definately love the flavour of this high calorie fruit in muffins,breads & cakes,it really gives a beautiful aroma and  is a fantastic replacement for eggs.Though have not used much of banana puree for my baking goodies but my earlier banana bread post was surely a hit.I actually had a fully ripened huge banana left and wanted to use it as soon as possible or else i had to throw it ,which i am strongly against and so to avoid all this i jumped on my (new..yes ,finally i got one..yay! im sooo happy) laptop to hunt an eggless banana muffin recipe,there i landed upon jayashree's space and my eyes caught on this recipe,which i found was very clear,easy , few ingredients to use,also the best part was she had used chocolate powder which is my all time favourite ingredient and i blindly can use anywhere :P and so without spending a minute i went into my kitchen and tried this  recipe immediately.Now the best part of this muffins is that being eggless also it was super moist and soft as she said in her post and was just perfect,i never ever imagined that an eggless muffin would ever turn out this good ! thank u jayashree for sharing such a wonderful eggless banana choclate muffin.
