The Best Banana Muffin Recipe

I have baked a batch of banana muffins every week since school started.  It is a combination of just having a lot of bananas turning too quickly and trying to have something for my teenage son to pack in his post cross country practice breakfast.  I have tried a bunch of different recipes and combined a few and I think I have found my families all time favorite.
