Put those overripe bananas to use with this delicious chocolate chip banana muffins recipe! Great for a busy morning bite or an afternoon snack, these muffins are easy to make and freezer-friendly for storing large batches. 

Servings: 12


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup ripe bananas (the riper, the better)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Chocolate syrup, optional

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2: In a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas, and then add the butter, milk and eggs. Mix well.

Step 3: Add the flour, sugar, nutmeg and baking powder, stirring continuously.

Step 4: Fold the chocolate chips and vanilla into the batter.

Step 5: Place paper baking cups in a muffin tin, and fill each 2/3 full with the batter.

Step 6: Bake for 20-25 minutes. Test the muffins by inserting a toothpick into the center of one (nearest to the center of the muffin tin) and remove; if the toothpick comes out clean, they are fully cooked.

Step 7: Remove the muffins from the oven, and let them cool completely before drizzling with chocolate syrup (optional).
