  1. Combine the Dry Ingredients- In a bowl, combine the flour cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.
  2. Combine the Wet Ingredients- In a large bowl, on medium speed, beat together the sugar and eggs until creamy (about 2 min). Mash the bananas and add to the egg mixture along with the sour cream, oil and vanilla. Stir by hand to combine.
  3. Combine Everything– Add the flour mixture into the egg mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Chocolate Chips– Fold in the choc chip morsels (leave a few tablespoons of morsels to add to the top of the muffins).
  5. Batter to Muffins– Add batter to a muffin pan lined with muffin liners. You want to fill the muffins about 3/4 of the way. Top the muffin batter with remaining morsels.
  6. Bake Muffins– Bake the muffins until a toothpick comes out clean if inserted in the center of the muffin. TIP- All ovens are different, keep an eye on the muffins, you don’t want them to OVERBAKE!

how to store and freeze banana muffins?

The muffins are SOO amazing and I’m pretty sure you won’t have any leftovers. If you do (or if you want to make them ahead of time), here are the tips for storing the muffins:

  • TO STORE– The muffins will stay fresh in an airtight container for two days. If refrigerated, they will stay up to 5 days.
  • TO FREEZE– Place cooled muffins in a freezer bag and freeze up to two months. Thaw to enjoy, reheat if you enjoy warm.

can I substitute the chocolate chips?

Though the chocolate chips really complete the muffins, you can use dried fruit like cranberries or raising, walnut or pecans also work great! You can even add the nuts to the chocolate chips, if you’d like.

These are a HUGE hit with the kids. Muffins are by far our favorite treat to make together with the kids. They prefer them over cookies (don’t ask why), no idea! (P.S. Since there are bananas in the recipe and they are a fruit, does this make the muffins healthy??.. Wink, wink.)

I hope your family will love the Muffin Recipe as much as we do.
