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.

    Amazing. Have been craving chocolate chip banana muffins for 2 straight months, definitely satisfied my craving. They are moist and decadent. I made 2 batches you can even sub out the chocolate chips for nuts. The only thing I will say that if you make your muffins bigger add on 5 minutes to the baking time. Definitely worth waiting the 2 months.

    Well it’s Super Bowl LVIII and I made these today. Gotta say these banana muffins are a touchdown lol. I always follow recipes as written and then tweak if needed. However no tweaking required here, these turned out perfectly fluffy and so moist. BTW Natasha I just bought your hardcover cookbook and can’t wait to try the recipes. They look very yummy and quick & easy to make. Enjoy the game all! 🙂

      Hi Janette! Some of my readers have made these in cupcake version. Mini cupcakes would work too but I haven’t personally tested it myself to provide the exact baking time. You should be able to keep temperature the same, just check them early on, likely around 10-12mins.

    The muffins are great!

    I was wondering if i can use vanilla powder (like solid vanilla extract) and instead mix it with all the dry ingredients, do you think it would make a difference?

    Also, can i have all the dry ingredients together instead of seperating the sugar. This would be useful for a project.

      I’m glad you love the recipe. I think the vanilla powder would be fine, it could alter the taste a bit since not all vanilla extracts/powders taste similar. I have not tried mixing the sugar with the dry ingredients. It’s important to cream the butter with the sugar and eggs. I would experiment with a batch beforehand to see if it works well for your project.

        Hello,

        Suprisingly it works! You can add the sugar with the rest of the dry ingredients! It doesn’t look the greatest (probably beacause it was 2 days old) but still tastes the same. I have not yet tried the vanilla sugar. This test was done without chocolate chips.

I added dark chocolate chips, and walnuts to mine. Myself a pretty continuous baker. And having made Many different banana breads/muffins. This is by far the best. Thank you so much.

    Followed recipe exactly, the butter amount is higher than my usual recipe of 1/3 cup! Ended up boing too oily and the butter seeped through the muffin wrapper. Also a good portion of the muffin stuck to the wrapper. I never have such issue, so it’s not a me or an oven problem. It’s a recipe problem. Too much butter does not necessarily translate to successful recipes!

      Same thing happened to me! Oil seeped through the liners and muffins stuck to the paper. I don’t like a lot of cinnamon, but I think a little would improve these. I followed the recipe. Banana sizes can vary considerably. A range of mashed banana volume might be helpful.

    These muffins came out amazing. I did my own spin and made a brown butter by using dark brown soft sugar, added 1/2 tip cinnamon and also added chopped hazelnuts. OMG definitely the best thing I baked in a while!

    These muffins are so fantastic, my boyfriend nearly proposed after tasting them.

    I made a few changes, which turns out great:
    – I substituted mini chocolate chips for standard size; this way, the chocolate was more evenly distributed throughout the cupcakes
    – I omitted the chocolate chips on top and instead sprinkled the tops with turbinado sugar before putting in the oven, which resulted in a sweet, sugary crust on top.

    These are fantastic and I will be surprised if they last more than two days in our house. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Natasha!

    I made these with monkfruit in place of sugar and used dark chocolate chips (not the bitter kind) . Also my bananas only had a few brown spots (the darker they are the higher sugar content they have ) and these turned out AMAZING!!

    Anyone looking for a healthier version this is it!

    I think I might have over baked them a tiny bit but they were still quite moist! I probably should have checked at the 20 minute mark. Also noticed there aren’t cooling instructions, I’ve made the mistake of leaving muffins in the tin for too long and they got all soggy…. Might be helpful to include those for novice bakers like myself 🙂 Love how yummy and easy this recipe is!

      Hi Eline, did you possibly use convection bake mode rather than conventional? That would need a temperature or time adjustment as it bakes up faster on convection. I hope that is helpful. Also, you are 100% correct – I missed the cooling instructions. Thank you! I went in and added them now.

    It was really delicious! I just wish the recipe was more specific as far as what tools to continue using in the mixing process. I couldn’t tell if I was supposed to continue using the hand mixer, the whisk, or the just a regular spoon to mix during the other steps and was kind of confused but thankfully my assumptions turned out right and the muffins turned out good 👍🏼

      Hi Cathy! I’m glad your family loved this recipe. Sometimes when bananas are too far gone, they have an odd or off-putting odor and taste. Some bananas can have a liquid or a mushy substance leaking out of them and should be discarded.

I’ve been looking over some of your other recipes and can’t wait to try them, too. I’m actually going to try your ‘banana bread’ and ‘banana muffin’ recipes this afternoon. (I’ve got a bunch of bananas that I need to get rid of.) The muffins are for me and my roommate and the bread is going to be a ‘thank you’ gift. (Of course, I’ll have to make a trial loaf of that for us, just to make sure it tastes alright, lol! Anyways, thanks for your help and for the amazing recipes!

    So I followed the recipe exactly and they are very moist and delightful texture/ratio with banana to chocolate chip…… my only concern is I did not spray the muffin liners or pan and the batter stuck to my liners!

    That being shared…. spray your liners!! EEK I lost 1/3 of my batter and they aren’t exactly servable ….. 🙁 Might be helpful to add that in the guide…. I’m sure an expert would know to always spray, however I was just following along and not thinking throughly.

      I’m sorry, I have not tested any substitutions to be able to advise on that. If you find something that works, please share.

      Use extra banana. I use 1 or 2 extra banana to replace the egg in the bread recipe and it came out perfect and very delicious. I do the same for this recipe.

    I just made these muffins as I had some bananas so ripe they were getting close to being soup in a peel! I found I was out of chocolate chips, but I did have peanut butter chips. I figured bananas and peanut butter can’t be wrong together, and I was right! These muffins are delectable, and I can’t wait to try them with chocolate chips. Or maybe I’ll go wild and add both chocolate AND peanut butter chips!!! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

    Natasha,
    This recipe is absolutely amazing!
    I made it as is and also added 1 cup of chopped walnuts. WOW!
    I ended up with 18 muffins instead of 12.
    Do you think I could freeze them?

    I made your recipe, for banana cupcakes. Except I made bread instead, without chocolate chips. I did substitute Vanilla extract for Banana extract. It was Delicious! My hubby and so did my neighbor love it. I will be making this again. Thank You!!!

      That depends on how much bigger, but you can also adjust the recipe. To adjust this recipe to two bananas, I think that should be about 8 muffins. I hope that helps!

      Hi Debbie, you may store it with a plastic wrap or foil or an airtight container to prevent drying if making it ahead. We hadn’t stored this for longer than two days, but it should work for a few days.

    TOO MUCH BUTTER. The muffins were oozing butter from the top and through the bottom of the cups after I took them out of the oven. I was patting them with paper towels. The muffins were very dense and lacked in flavor. I will not use this recipe again.

      Hi Victoria, I have made these many times and haven’t experienced that. I wonder if you used a different measure of butter? Some butter comes in different packages, I suggest checking the metric measurements to what you are using. That definitely sounds unusual.

      The recipe card says half a cup of butter and then underneath it says 8 tablespoons so maybe she added all of it. Like half a cup of butter and 8 tablespoons makes it a little confusing. Might want to change that! This recipe is divine!

      I also had the same issue ,pools of butter in the bottom of the muffin tins , butter soaked through the paper liner. Never had that happen before with other recipes 🤷🏻‍♀️

        Hi, I haven’t had that experience either however the only thing I can think of is to make sure that the butter is softened and not melted, otherwise it may not incorporate properly into the batter.

    This recipe was fast to make and absolutely delicious! I made the muffins without the chocolate chips because I did not have any on hand. Also, I did not have baking soda, so I used baking powder in lieu of that. However, they were very tasty and super moist. Perfect use of leftover bananas!

    I trend towards healthy banana muffin recipes with unrefined sugars and alternative flours, to up the nutrition density, but today I was craving a quintessential banana chocolate chip muffin made with simple, traditional ingredients. This is it! They’re insanely delicious- hot from the oven or room temp- and baked to perfection in 25 minutes. Moist, flavorful & perfectly sweetened. This will be my go-to decadent banana chocolate chip muffin recipe for times when I want a splurge!

    I made this today and it’s so good!! I only added 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips, I figure it’s sweet already and it was perfect! Also, I did not have muffin liners, so I just sprayed my muffin pan with baking spray. Thank you for your recipe, Natasha! I want you to know that your blueberry lemon cake is my eldest son’s fave cake, we make it often. This will be my banana muffin go-to recipe from now on.

    Recipe made twelve perfect muffins! Every so often, I find myself with more than one overripe bananas on the counter and go browsing for a banana bread recipe. Happened upon yours that adds chocolate chips and decided to give it a go. Not only was the recipe easy to follow, didn’t have to venture out shopping for anything-huge plus for me on a Sun morn. They are delicious, the house smells great and am lookin forward to checking out some of the other recipes here. Can’t believe I have never tried with choc chips!!
