Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

 Chocolate chips + bananas= the best muffins ever! These moist, delicious muffins are the perfect way to start your day off right or give you that extra pick me up, as a late afternoon snack. I also love these muffins for dessert because they’re loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips, my favorite!

And not only do I love these muffins because all of the chocolate chips in them, the crunchy banana chips on top really take these chocolate chip banana muffin to the next level. YUM!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

✔  When mixing the butter and sugar together, make sure that you beat it for at least 2 minutes or until it starts to become light in color and creamy. This step is super important, so be patient and make sure it’s light and creamy.

✔  I like to use an ice cream scooper to fill the muffin batter into each muffin tin. I think it makes it super easy and you know that each muffin will be the same size. For these chocolate chip banana muffins, I pressed dried banana chips and mini chocolate chips into the top of the muffin batter, but if you don’t want to use banana chips and mini chocolate chips, no worries the muffins will still be just as good!

✔  Lastly, don’t let the muffins “cool” in the hot muffin pan, after about 5 minutes take the muffins out of the muffin pan and place them on a wire rack to cool for another 5-10 minutes. Keeping the muffins in the muffin pan too long will lead to dry, overcooked muffins.

    Hi!  I’m sorry, but I might have missed this, when do you add in the creamy peanut butter?  Do you mix it with the butter first?

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — March 5th, 2015 @ 1:36 pm

      I didn’t include peanut butter in this recipe but you could add a 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter and mix it in when you add the mashed bananas.
