Easy Peasy Banana and Chocolate Chips Muffins

I think it takes half the time to make these than typing it's name ;) . Seriously it's that easy to whip up a batch of this . My kids and hubby loves them so I make these quite often . It's tastes best straight out of the oven so here goes............


3 ripe bananas
50 gms butter melted
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
3-4 tbsp sugar
1 cup unbleached white flour or all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
a pinch of salt
1/4 cup or more if you like chocolate chips


In a large mixing bowl , add the melted butter and the bananas and mash them .
Add the egg , vanilla and sugar and mix well
Sift all the dry ingredients together and add it to the mixture .
Mix it up but take care not to over mix it .
Stir in the chocolate chips .
Line the muffin pan with paper cases and bake in a preheated 180 c oven for about 25 min or till done .
This makes 6 large muffins .


  1. I love bananas and chocolate together. Definately I will give this recipe a try. My kids will love it!

  2. I'm going to make these tomorrow! I have 6 ripe bananas sitting on my counter. My son even admitted he didn't eat them and let them go ripe because he wanted me to bake something with them.

  3. Thank you and please lemme know how it goes , don't forget :) .

  4. Shabs--I just took the first batch out of the oven! So yummy! I thought I had 6 bananas, but it was only 5 which was 2 cups of banana. I still doubled the recipe, and I also made them in a mini-muffin pan. The only other change I made was that I used peanut butter chips. As I was digging through my stash of chips they literally fell on my head. The banana-pb combo was really good.

  5. How could you possible go wrong with chocolate chips, paired with all-time favorites in muffins, or banana bread. Shabs, your muffins turned out so yummy, love the tops of them!

  6. Oh btw love the new look of your site :) And next, you should go into business. Start a bakery, really!

  7. Thank you Jill ,Elisabeth and Nash . Naaah , I am too lazy to take on a job .

  8. Love this! Thank you! I adjusted the recipe a little bit to my liking and here is how it turned out Muffins
