    2      Lg            Bananas, Ripe (Or 3 Medium)
      2/3  C             Sugar
    2                    Eggs
    6      Tbsp          Butter -- melted
    1      Tsp           Vanilla Extract
    2      C             Flour

 Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add 
 sugar and eggs and mix well. Stir in melted butter and vanilla. Add flour, 
 baking soda, and buttermilk. Stir with a fork just enough to combine. Stir 
 in chocolate chips and pecans. Spoon batter into 12 paper-lined 2 3/4-inch 
 muffin cups, filling almost full. Bake 20 to 22 mins, or until golden and 
 a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Let muffins stand 5 
 mins; then transfer to racks to let cool completely.
