These banana chocolate chip muffins are quick to make, full of banana flavor, aren’t too sweet, and have crunchy tops, and they taste just like banana bread! They are delicious with or without the chocolate chips, or you can replace the chocolate chips with nuts.
These muffins are the kind you wish to find in any bakery to go with your morning coffee. They are so easy to make, they’ll be ready in 10 minutes. They make a great midday snack. Or morning snack. Or late night snack!
How to Make Easy Banana Muffins From Scratch
This is the best banana chocolate chip muffin recipe if you ask me! They come together quickly and they are super easy to make. No fancy ingredients or equipment. Just mix all the dry ingredient in one bowl (flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar), and the rest of the ingredients in another bowl, then mix the two mixtures together. Mix just until the ingredients are combined, because over mixing can make the muffins dry and dense.
How to Get The Best Banana Flavor
I use 3 large bananas to get lots of banana flavor. The riper they are, the better because they are moister, and sweeter that way, so use very ripe bananas. Mash the bananas with a fork until there are no big chunks left and the batter is smooth. The muffins taste like banana bread in muffin form, and they are extra moist.
