Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin — tender, moist and tasty muffins with great flavor combination of sweet bananas and chocolate chips. Sweet enough for a light dessert but also perfect for breakfast and after school snack. Comes ready in 30 minutes!
I always have bananas in my pantry. Most of the time, I just left them to ripe until it have few black patches (but still with manageable taste) just so I have an excuse to make whatever desserts I have in my mind.
If you’re looking for some ways to revamp your overly ripe bananas into, I got your back, peeps. You can try this Caribbean Banana Nut Bread , Banana Pineapple Bread and Banana Chocolate Coconut Muffin. All of them are big hit in the family and in my workplace, too.
You can never go wrong with bananas!
They are pretty much accessible here in my area and has a decent price too, so why not grab the opportunity and make it a part of a healthy daily diet, right? But today, we’re skipping that “H” word. Oh yes! Let’s say that again.
My son has been turning me into some sort of baking machine, so evidently, we’ve been consuming a lot of baked goods lately. But no complaints AT ALL cause your girl here loves it too.

Tips and Notes:
- In this recipe, I used the mini chocolate chips on muffins but you may replaced it with the regular semi-sweet chocolate chips.
- Feel free to replace the chocolate chips with chopped pecans, walnuts or dried berries. You may also combine it with the chocolate chips for that extra texture on the muffins.
- You may place the batter on paper baking cups but after many attempts I prefer to grease the muffin pan and just pour the batter on it directly. Paper baking cups tend to get the muffin bottom soggy. But if you really want them on baking cups, grease the pan first before putting all the cups.
