How to make chocolate chip banana bread muffins

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Step 1: Add the melted butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and ripe mashed bananas to a large bowl and stir or whisk to combine.

Step 2: In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.

Step 3: Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. Be careful not to over mix the batter, as this will result in dense muffins instead of light and fluffy.

Step 4: Fold the semisweet chocolate chips into the banana muffin batter with a rubber spatula.

Line a muffin tin with parchment paper muffin liners. These are my favorite to use, as nothing will stick to them and no spray is needed.

Step 5: Pour the batter into the muffin tins, then top with extra chocolate chips.

Step 6: Bake the banana muffins at 375 degrees for 17-19 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Once the muffins have cooled a few minutes in the muffin tin, remove them onto a wire cooling rack.

Yes! Just bake them for 12-16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

You can use semi sweet or dark chocolate full sized or mini chocolate chips for this recipe.
