Happy Accident--Banana Chip Muffins Take 3

Okay, I am on my third banana chip muffin/bread recipe...but this one really isn't a new recipe, it's just me messing up my favorite recipe, with the results actually being better!  So, I had a ton of bananas that needed to be used up, and I needed to replenish my freezer supply of banana chocolate chip muffins for my boys to have as breakfast, snacks, etc....so, I thought I'd just do a double batch on my usual recipe...well, I forgot halfway through, well really just when I was measuring the flour, baking soda, and salt....and I didn't realize my mistake until later in the day, after we had all enjoyed some of the muffins.  Really, these ones were my best batch yet, so I'm writing down my 'mistake' so I don't forget it. :)  This recipe will easily make 24 muffins.
I got this amazing train cake pan for Christmas (actually for the 12 days of Christmas which was done to us, thank you, our Christmas elves!).  My little ones loved banana chip muffins before...but now they are devouring them...everything is tastier when it has a fun shape, right?
