Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Posted by  ·  February 24, 2018  ·  Last Updated: March 27, 2019

Looking for delicious banana chocolate chip muffins? Look no further!  I love warm muffins fresh from the oven and these are just right! If you like moist muffins that are full of flavor and chocolate chips you have found your recipe!  This for sure is what you need to do with overripe bananas.  We are also huge fans of banana bread. You might like my go-to chocolate chip banana bread. I share two recipes one with whole wheat flour for a slightly healthier version.  I make this easy banana bread when I am in a hurry. You won’t believe how moist and delicious it is.

I have also baked them in these cute nut cups. I loved how they kept their color and the muffins came out beautifully! They didn’t even need to be sprayed with cooking spray.

These muffins freeze beautifully. So if you happen to end up with some extras just freeze for later. This recipe also works for mini muffins.  They make a great grab and go snack.

    Don’t know yet - but I found this recipe when searching for . . . . . — and the intro paragraph says — “so easy and starts with a cake mix!” But no cake mix is listed!! I’m going to TRY with a white cake mix and add bananas and choc. chips. I’ll let you know!!! 😄

      I would wrap the bread tightly and place in the freezer. This bread freezes beautifully.

    Anyone know how many calories in these muffins?

      I am not sure Wendy, I think there are some online programs that allow you to put in the ingredients and find the calories.

      Hey June, I think the cups are back in stock. These bake perfectly in regular baking cups too!

    I made these this morning, took the advice of another comment and added about a teaspoon of Penzy's apple pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove). They were delicious. My very picky 3 year old loved them as well! Will definitely make again!

    Did anyone have a problem with these sticking to the paper?

      I haven't had that problem, Shelby. You could always just spray your muffin pan with cooking spray and bake directly in the pan without the papers.

    I loved the little yellow portion cups, very cute! As much as I love banana muffins, I add cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger for a bit more kick...Makes them seem more special for some reason!

    This recipe is for 12 muffins, however these portion cups are slightly smaller than a regular size muffin so I was able to make 16 muffins.
