Banana Chip Muffins

by on February 27, 2012 · 12 comments

Forget the air freshener, make these muffins instead! The sweet aroma of banana, sugar and chocolate baking in the oven is amazing. So much in fact, that if any candle maker is reading this, we just found your new scent!

My best friend doesn’t like bananas… I know, it confuses me, too. These are obviously not for her, but if you’re on the other side of the banana boat (ha!), you will love these and if you don’t, package them up and send them our way, because we do.

p.s. since I know she’s reading this, for all you anti-banana folks, try these strawberry yogurt muffins, instead!


How to make Banana Chip Muffins

Making muffins are easy, start by combining all the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Next, use a fork to combine 3 ripe mashed bananas, an egg, vanilla extract and some melted butter.

Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients then use a fork to mix just until the two come together. No need to beat or over mix, here.

In go the mini chocolate chips. We like using mini chips so we can be absolutely sure that every bite results in chocolate!

Use a spoon, ice cream scoop or cookie/dough scoop to fill each cup 3/4 of the way full then bake for 25-30 minutes.

You could cool these completely, but warm is definitely the way to go in our book. Enjoy!

These easy banana muffins with mini chocolate chips are a great snack or breakfast on the run. We like to use mini chocolate chips for these so that every bite has chocolate in it. Also, make sure the bananas you use are ripe, if not overripe. The more ripe, the more flavor. If you would like, adding some toasted walnut or pecan pieces would be delicious, too. This recipe will make 12-14 muffins depending on the size of your muffin/cupcake pan.

Looks so tasty! I made some banana chocolate chip bread before, but these muffins look better. I’ll have to give them a try. :)

Great muffins! I only had 2 bananas, but the muffins still taste wonderful. I also forgot to buy vanilla this week, so I used maple syrup instead. These are tasty muffins! Will make again.

Maple syrup is a great idea.
