Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chip Streusel

The best way to use up those bananas that have been sitting around for too long and gone black is to mash them and bake into a cake, or in this case, super-moist banana muffins. Add to that a delicious streusel topping of chocolate chips and walnuts and you have a pure decadent delight.
