Time For A Treat: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Photo credit

My kiddos seem to be hungry just about every minute of the day right now.  Like, all the time, never gonna end, we really, really-need-to-eat-right-this-minute-mom hungry!  And, while I do buy lots of bargains at the grocery store, I love taking a few minutes to bake them a slightly more healthy snack at home.


This recipe is from my friend Nancy at Real Food Allergy Free, and they’re easily gobbled down in one morning flat at our house. (They’re soooo good!) You can also check out Nancy’s gluten-free recipe over HERE, and the recipe doubles easily if your family loves them as much as we do. . .


Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


  1. 3 ripe bananas
  2. 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  5. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  7. 1 teaspoon salt
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  9. 1 egg
  10. 1 cup chocolate chips



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. Combine bananas, oil, sugar, vanilla & egg in a large bowl; mix well.
  3. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to banana mixture, mixing just until blended (ignore lumps).
  4. Fill muffin tins 2/3 cups full.
  5. Bake 20 minutes, cool & enjoy!

  1. These look so tasty! I will definitely be trying them soon!

    • Hope you enjoy them Jessica – we love them (I’m going this morning to pick up the ingredients to make them for my kiddos!)

  2. I’ve made these 3 or 4 times since the recipe was posted but am finding the batter dry when mixed. I’ve had to add around 3/4 c of milk each time. Anyone else found this to be true?

    • Thanks so much for letting me know Crystal! I’ve always made them as the recipe says, but it may be worth adding a little extra oil or milk if you find it to be dry. I’ll watch the next time I make them and update the post if it needs to be changed!

  3. Does it matter if the flour is whole wheat? I have everything else, but the only flour in my kitchen is all purpose.
