I've been searching for a filling, on-the-go breakfast and finally found it in these muffins! I make a dozen or two on the weekend and I'm good to go all week! Plus, now I know what to do with those overripe bananas I seem to always have on hand! #muffinrecipe #easymuffinrecipe #bananachocolatechipmuffin #chocolatechipmuffin #bananamuffinrecipe

While Joseph and I enjoy our go-to Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie almost every morning for breakfast (it’s our first-meal-of-the-day of choice!), there’s not always time to throw together the ingredients and power up the blender.

So the next best option? Muffins!

Especially if I have these delectable muffins on hand—they truly are the BEST banana chocolate-chip muffins of all time.

These muffins feature an ultra soft center with a sprinkling of chocolate chips for added sweetness. It’s the perfect way to use overripe bananas, and if you’re anything like me, you always have a few of those either on the countertop or stashed away in the freezer! (They’re good for you!)

Bonus: These muffins make a great snack, too. I love to make an extra batch or two (sometimes in a mini muffin tin like this one for an even more snack-friendly size) and freeze in a gallon freezer bag. Just heat one up for a few seconds in the microwave for perfectly gooey chocolate chips!

The Process Behind the Best Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Ever

Step 1: Mix together mashed bananas, eggs, oil, and vanilla.

  1. These are in the oven now! The raw batter tastes soooo yummy…yes, I licked my fingers. :). Can’t wait till they’re out!

  2. says 24 muffins… would this be 24 mini muffins or 24 regular size muffins? Thanks~

    1. I can’t say for sure, but based on other recipes I’ve researched that use about the same ingredients, I would say it’s about 200 calories for 1 muffin. Hope that helps!

  3. Just made these and they came out pretty good….. But next time I would use just 2 bananas (not 3) and definitely less oil (mine came out pretty oily when finished).

  4. I found your recipe on Pinterest yesterday and gave it a try last night, they were delicious. Very moist even the next day. I used the mini chips semi sweet as it’s what I had but next time will use the milk chocolate version as the recipe calls. I only did 1/2 the recipe and it yielded 7 regular size muffins. Will try others from this site.

    1. So glad you enjoyed them, Irene! I’ve had a craving for these muffins lately and have some bananas in the freezer just waiting for me to make them again. 🙂

  5. I make banana chocolate chip muffins all the time because a) I always have overripe bananas b) my guy loves chocolate chip cookies, but he’s not getting them for breakfast!

    1. Joseph (my husband) would totally eat chocolate chip cookies for breakfast if he could get away with it. HAHA!
