These muffins are so quick to throw together, it’s such a fun recipe to make with kids.

    1. MASH BANANAS- You can mash the bananas with a fork. We like having chunks of bananas in the muffins so we leave the bananas a little chunky. You can mash the bananas until pureed.
    2. DRY INGREDIENTS- Combine the flour with baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. The cocoa powder gives the muffins its chocolatey flavor.
    3. WET INGREDIENTS-  Mix together the eggs and sugar. Add the mashed bananas, oil, sour cream and whisk to combine.
    4. COMBINE-  Add in half of the flour mixture, gently mix to combine. Add remaining flour and mix. 
    5. CHOCOLATE CHIPS- The key ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chip morsels, reserving some for the top.
    6. BAKE- Evenly distribute the batter between the 12 muffins. Add remaining morsels over top of batter. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean in the center of muuffin.

tips on how to get the BEST banana bread muffins-

  • Use overripe bananas, they have more flavor to add to banana bread.
  • Instead of using a mixer, mix with a wire whisk to avoid overbeating.
  • Sift the flour once you have it measured. Sifted flour always performs better when baking.
  • Don’t overbake the muffins, they won’t be as soft.

can I freeze banana bread muffins?

Yes, the muffins freeze well. Wrap in plastic wrap and put into a freezer container or freezer bag, they will stay fresh 2-3 months. Thaw muffins completely before enjoying. Reheat until warm if desired.

      I love hearing this, really resonates with me. I want to minimize the sugar intake for my kids and these are perfect for that reason. So glad I’m not the only one :).

    These are perfection. I baked two batches and they’re definitely going into my recipe book. So light and airy and so chocolatey, everyone loved them.

    Just finished making these, eating a warm one as I write. I was very skeptical after tasting the batter because it was very bitter, however when these baked up the bitterness faded away. They’re definitely on the less sweet side, so if you’re looking for something to satisfy a sugar craving I would probably increase the sugar. My husband prefers less sweet so I’m sure he’ll enjoy these with his tea.

      That’s wonderful, Roxanne. And yet, they are a little on the less sweet side (I forgot to note that). I hope he loved the muffins. 🙂 Thanks for visiting our online home, stop back again.
