**Banana Tip!** Store ripening bananas in the freezer until ready to use for banana muffins or banana bread. Simply place whole banana, peel and all in the freezer. When ready to use, place in a bowl and let defrost. These make the best Banana Muffin and bread recipes ever!

Preheat Oven to 350°F

Banana Mixture

Remove bananas from the freezer 30-60 minutes before starting recipe for the easiest results. If still frozen be sure to peel and mash before adding in the following step.

In a large bowl mix together oil, sugar and eggs. Then cut open the top of the bananas and squeeze out the banana pulp into the mixing bowl. Because the bananas have been frozen and defrosted they do not usually need any mashing, but if necessary go ahead and mash in a separate bowl before adding to the oil, sugar, egg mixture.

Blend together well and then add the chocolate chips and mix batter some more.

Sometimes I leave the chocolate chips out so we can have a quick breakfast snack on the go without the added sugar. Honestly, I’m a huge banana bread, banana muffin fan so I love these no matter what!

Combine Dry Ingredients with Banana Mixture!

Combine dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

Now it is time to prepare the dry portion of this recipe. In a medium-size bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Whisk with a fork until well combined!

Combine your wet & dry ingredients!

Slowly add dry ingredients to your wet ingredients while mixing on low or stirring by hand. Once all dry is folded in with the wet it is time to get them in the muffin pans.

Muffin paper inserts make clean a breeze!

I like to use muffin papers in size large but sometimes I run out. So if you don’t have any on hand no worries simply grease your muffin trays and you are good to go.

Using a ladle fill approximately 3/4 of the muffin cup.

Bake the Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Bake muffin batter for 20 minutes and check with a toothpick to ensure they are done.

Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Use a toothpick to check the muffins around the 15-minute mark for your first batch until you establish appropriate baking time in your oven with this recipe. Before removing from oven the toothpick should come out clean with no batter on it. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Serve as is or with a bit of butter!

Serve and enjoy your Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins!

Every time I bake these muffins I have the intention of freezing some however they are such a hit they don’t seem to make it to the freezer anymore. To freeze them simply put in a well-sealed freezer-friendly container. They are still fresh and moist once thawed. Don’t forget these are perfect for school lunches, a quick breakfast addition on the run or a great snack after school!

Save it for later!
