How to Make Banana Muffins
Full directions on how to make double chocolate banana muffins are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
Step 1: Start by preheating your oven and then place liners in muffin tin.
Step 2: Whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
Step 3: In a bowl you are going to mix up your wet ingredients.
Make sure to fully mash up the bananas.
Step 4: Add in the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Step 5: Put batter in muffin liners and bake as directed. Then serve and enjoy.
- I recommend using room temperature ingredients when you make your banana muffins.
- Make sure you are using bananas that have brown speckles on the peel. Otherwise the banana flavor will not stand out in muffins.
- Allow muffins to cool completely before you store them in a container. Or condensation will build in the container and sog up the muffins.
- Swap out the chocolate chips with white chocolate, milk chocolate, etc.
- Add in some walnuts or even crushed pecans for a crunch factor.
Room Temperature: You can store your leftover chocolate chip muffins on the counter at room temperature. Just store in an airtight container or bag.
Freezer: You can also freeze the muffins if you would like. Allow the muffins fully cool then freeze for 2-3 months. Thaw on the counter for an hour or so and then enjoy.
You do not have to sift the dry ingredients, but you will find if you do it creates a fluffier texture to the muffins. I like to sift as it also helps remove clumps in the cocoa powder.
Simply place aluminum foil on a baking sheet and place your bananas in a single layer. Heat at 200 degrees F. Then place bananas in and cook for 15-30 minutes or until the peels of the bananas are black. Remove and allow the bananas to cool a bit then remove the flesh.
Go right ahead and leave out the chocolate chips if you don’t want a double chocolate muffin. Or you can even swap it out with a white chocolate or milk chocolate if you prefer.
Yes, you can double this recipe. Simply grab another muffin pan or batch cook your muffins in the oven. Keep the oven the same temperature and for the same amount of time.
