Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is the prefect thing to make with bananas that have gotten a little too ripe. I chose to try out this recipe because I had everything on hand and it called for melted butter which makes everything easier. It is my new go to recipe now. I used mini chocolate chips because they spread out more through the muffin. You have to have chocolate in every bite!


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large)
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line twelve 1/3-cup muffin cups with foil muffin liners. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Mix mashed bananas, egg, melted butter and milk in medium bowl. Stir banana mixture into dry ingredients just until blended (do not overmix). Stir in chocolate chips.

Divide batter among prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Bake muffins until tops are pale golden and tester inserted into center comes out with some melted chocolate attached but no crumbs, about 32 minutes. Transfer muffins to rack; cool

  1. love the recipe! Very ironic.. I just posted about my banana chocolate chip muffin recipe... it's a "healthy" version... ;) I want to try yours though... they are probably light and fluffy and not as dense since there is no wheat flour!
