Ingredients & Variations
Similar to the ingredients found in a classic banana bread with the addition of chocolate chips!
For this recipe we use all purpose flour. You can also substitute up to 1/3 of the flour with quick oats with great results!
Adding chocolate chips makes for the perfect sweet treat. Mini chips, white chocolate chips or even milk chocolate chips will work in this recipe too!
This recipe is a perfect way to use up overripened bananas! If your bananas aren’t quite ready you can ripen them quickly by popping them in a 350°F oven for 10-15 mins wrapped in foil!
You can also add in up to 2 tablespoons of peanut butter to make peanut butter banana chocolate chip muffins! Yum!
When it comes to measuring flour, don’t use your measuring cups to scoop it out of the bag or container, rather use a spoon or scoop to scoop it into this measuring cup. This helps to avoid muffins that are too dense. Check out this How to Measure Flour guide for more helpful tips!

Muffin Baking Times
- For mini muffins, bake 14 to 16 minutes

How to Store
The best way to store banana chocolate chip muffins is to keep them in a zippered bag or an airtight container at room temperature. They will keep about 5 days.
To freeze, either wrap them individually in a layer of plastic wrap under a layer of aluminum foil or put them in a zippered bag with the date on it and pop them in the freezer! A frozen muffin will be defrosted by lunchtime for a delicious surprise! Easy peasy!
