  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash bananas using a fork.
  3. Add sugar and slightly beaten egg.
  4. Add cooled, melted margarine.
  5. Add dry ingredients and stir only until combined.
  6. Add chocolate chips and mix gently until combined.
  7. Fill paper-lined muffin tins 2/3 full with batter.
