Banana Muffins Recipe

Soft and moist Banana Muffins with melty chocolate chips are the ultimate treat. Banana chocolate chip muffins are a great way to use overripe bananas and a fresh spin on classic banana bread.

Chocolate chips make everything better! They add great moisture and a gooey chocolate chip is the equivalent of melty cheese in the dessert world. One look at our chocolate chip cookies and you’ll agree.

Banana Muffins Recipe:

We’ve had so many questions about turning our chocolate chip banana bread into muffins so here you go – your guide to the best banana muffins! While we love banana bread, these muffins bake fast (25 minutes) and the flavor is just as good.

Can I Substitute the Chocolate Chips?

You can omit the chocolate if you prefer a basic banana muffin. The ripe bananas will still provide great banana flavor, moisture and natural sweetness. You can also substitute the chocolate chips with an equal amount of toasted chopped walnuts for banana nut muffins, or replace with raisins for banana raisin muffins.

Can I use Frozen Bananas?

If you have overripe bananas and aren’t ready to use them, toss them in a ziploc (peel on) and freeze them for later. Before adding frozen ripe bananas to the recipe, thaw completely at room temperature, or in the refrigerator overnight. Frozen bananas tend to release more moisture so peel and lightly pat dry with paper towels to remove excess liquid.

Ingredients for banana muffins with overripe bananas and chocolate chips

How to Make Banana Muffins:

  1. Preheat the oven and place liners in a 12-count muffin tin.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar then mix in lightly beaten eggs.
  3. Add mashed bananas and vanilla.
  4. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt then mix into batter. Fold in 3/4 cup chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop batter into lined muffin tin, sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake.

Pro Tips for Moist Banana Muffins

There are 3 key points for achieving moist and tender banana muffins:

  • Use very ripe or overripe bananas. Underripe bananas will be difficult to mash and won’t incorporate into the batter well.
  • Do not skimp on the butter. Since there is no other ‘liquid’ in this recipe, softened butter is needed for a soft and moist crumb.
  • Don’t over-bake. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center after 25 minutes and continue baking only if you see wet batter on the toothpick.

    Delicious recipe! Was looking for something a little different than “just banana muffins” when I came across your recipe. Instead of using the regular muffin tin, I used a mini-muffin tin and used this recipe to make “mini muffins”. They turned out delicious. They didn’t last long in our house. Guess I’ll have to make more!

        Hi Linda, I haven’t tried these as mini banana muffins but it would probably be about half the amount of time. You might test with a toothpick for doneness at 10 minutes and do 10-15 minutes at 350˚F.

    These muffins were delicious!! They were light and fluffy, I could eat them all!
    When I saw that they made 12 muffins I decided to do a double batch because I wanted some extra. Little did I know that doubling the batch made 48 muffins!! I don’t know if i mixed the butter and sugar too long but just a little heads up, I have a lot of muffins. (But honestly I would do it again. They are just that good.)

      Hi Anne, I haven’t tested that substitution to advise on the outcome. Cake flour is slightly different, and you may need to make adjustments for the right texture. I found the following via a quick Google search: “When you use cake flour rather than all-purpose flour, you should use 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of cake flour for every recommended cup of all-purpose flour. You can replace all or a portion of the flour as you please.” I hope that helps.

    Tried the muffin recipe today, they are really good! I substituted half of the butter for 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, and split the 3/4 cup chocolate chips with toasted chopped walnuts. So it was a banana nut chocolate muffin. They turned out great and were plenty moist despite swapping out half the butter. I did that to save on the calories a bit. Thanks Natasha!

    These were delicious. I used 2/3 cup walnuts/pecans instead of chocolate chips. I used my large Pampered Chef scoop and got 17 muffins. Done perfect at 25 minutes.

    Great recipe. I’ll probably add another banana to add more banana flavor. I also added nutmeg and cinnamon, then 25 minutes. Perfection. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!

    Silly question but what does “cream together” mean?

      Hi Mona, creaming means mixing butter and sugar at a moderately high speed until well blended, fluffy, and pale yellow

    There is a lot about this recipe that I like. They are very rich and flavorful. I did tweak it a little, but I noticed they had a bitter taste. I’m assuming that is due to the baking soda. Next time I will try with 2 tsp baking powder and omit the 1 tsp baking soda.

    I made these and they taste great but they really stick to the muffin wrapper, which is always a bummer. Any guess as to what I may have done that would have caused this?

      Hi Melissa, You may use non-stick liners or grease the wrappers by giving it a quick spritz of nonstick cooking spray before filling them.

      Hi Shellina, I haven’t tested that so I’m not sure how it would affect the texture or what else needs to be modified with using whole wheat flour.

    I’ve yet to try this! I’ve tried the banana bread and it was so delicious! I was just wondering if you could also suggest the weight of the mashed bananas, as we have a lot of varieties of banana here, thus different sizes. Thank you very much! <3

    These were delicious. I swapped butter for low fat Olivio, used caster sugar and 1 1/2 tsp baking powder instead of baking sofa (just because that’s all I had ! ) and they still turned out perfectly

      I’ve tried multiple banana chocolate chip recipes and this one is by far the best! I continue to come back to it because the muffins always turn out so moist and delicious. They also do not spoil as quickly as other recipes do (from my experience they’ve lasted 4-5 days room temperature). 10/10!
