Soft, moist and dense banana muffins loaded with chocolate chips! This easy muffin recipe comes together in just about a half-hour and is perfect as a snack or breakfast (or both).


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 bananas)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, plus more for topping


  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Line 12 standard muffin cups with paper baking liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a separate medium bowl, use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix mashed bananas, melted butter, eggs and vanilla extract until combined. Pour the banana mixture into the flour mixture; whisk until just combined (batter will be slightly lumpy). Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups (the cups will be quite full). Top each cup with a few more chocolate chips as desired. Bake for 5 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350°F, then continue to bake muffins for 15 to 18 minutes or until the tops of the muffins are golden-brown and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean.
  4. Cool muffins in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
