Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

November 2, 2017

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.

 Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

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.

    I loved your muffins so much! Easy and fast.Personally, I added a little bit of an orange zest and its juice because it was getting old and was last one. It turned out great as a mix of taste, banana, orange and dark chocolate 🙂 The texture of muffin itself was so… fluffy and soft, melting in your mouth that muffins dissapeared so fast from the counter that I had only one 🙁 Will make another batch soon!

    I doubled the recipe and made mini muffins for school lunches; great nut-free option. I used a bit less sugar. These were so easy to make and came out tasty and fluffy. I will use this recipe again.

        So, when I incorporate Greek Yoghurt/Sour Cream, do I have to alter any other ingredients and their measurements?

    Thank you for such a delicious recipe! I’ve made it several times during quarantine, and my family especially my little one loves them! I add a 1/2 c whole wheat flour, keep all purpose flour to a cup, and I add 1/2 c chopped walnuts to bolster the protein and fiber a tad. Sooo yummy, thanks again!!
