DSC_0039 I love a good muffin, even though they get a bad rap for not being the best for you. So they’re a bit of treat to your regular diet but we all deserve a treat now and then don’t we? I decided to make these muffins since I had some bananas in the freezer but I decided to up the ante from the standard banana muffin by adding a little bit of extra chocolate.

DSC_0041 DSC_0044 DSC_0047 DSC_0059 DSC_0063 DSC_0065 Ingredients: 

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup of brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 large or 3 small-medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup milk (I use 2%)
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Additional chocolate chips for top of muffins


  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Melt butter. Add sugar, baking powder, salt, bananas, egg, and milk in a large mixing bowl with a whisk. It’s okay to leave chunks of banana in the batter.
  3. Add flour and 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  4. Stir gently with a wooden spoon just until combined.
  5. Spoon batter evenly into each muffin tin.
  6. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips over top of batter.
  7. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes.
  8. Adjust temperature to 350°.
  9. Continue baking an additional 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  10. Cool.
