Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins – a quick and easy banana muffin with plenty of chocolate chips! Great to have in your freezer for busy mornings!

We all know that I love muffins by this point.  There are probably 50 Muffin Recipes on the blog so far.  But this one has to be a favorite.  I tend to always buy too many bananas because I like to bake with them.  Blueberry Banana Bread is a favorite for the whole family.  

But muffins are a close 2nd.  They are one of my favorite things to have stashed in the freezer to make mornings fast and easy.  These Chocolate Banana Blender Muffins are my personal favorite.  You can just grab a couple from the freeze and microwave for a breakfast that is ready in less than a minute!

These banana chocolate chip muffins were are huge hit with my my son.  He really loves anything that has chocolate chips in it.  These Chocolate Chip Muffins will forever be his favorite, but he still devoured these.  

Pro Tip 

If you buy too many bananas, but can’t use them right away you can peel them and put them in the freezer.  Sometimes life gets in the way, and you can’t drop everything and bake when you want to.  So instead of wasting those bananas just remove the peel and store in a freezer safe plastic bag in the freezer.  I like to put 2-3 bananas in a small bag, inside of a larger bag, so I can just take out what I need for a recipe like this and still leave the rest frozen for later. 

What You’ll Need

  • Flour – all-purpose flour works great for these
  • Brown Sugar
  • Sugar
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Egg
  • Oil – you can use any oil you like or even butter works very well
  • Vanilla
  • Bananas
  • Chocolate Chips

How to Make Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • Like with most muffins the trick really is to mix the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients together separately, so when you mix everything together you don’t over mix. 
  • Whisk together flour, both sugars, baking soda, baking powder and the salt.  
  • Mix your mashed banana with the oil, egg and vanilla until it is nice and smooth.
  • Use a spatula to mix the banana mixture and the flour mixture together until just barely combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to divide the dough into the muffin tins.  It helps make sure that all the muffins are filled the same, and it is easy clean up. 
  • Bake until a tester comes out clean and the muffins are golden brown.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.  
  • Once they are cool you can store in a freezer safe bag to store in the freezer or in an air tight container in the pantry.

Mornings can be busy, so having muffins stashed in the freezer makes it easy!  I rely on having a stocked freezer, so that when life gets crazy, I can know that my family is still getting breakfast every morning.  These Sausage Breakfast Sandwiches are a life saver as well.  You can mix them up with bacon or ham, different kind of cheese, or even a bagel or lower carb sandwich thin if you wanted to. 

Be sure to pick up some extra bananas this week, so you can make these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins and have on hand for breakfast, brunch, or even a lunch box treat!  Such an easy recipe, even the kids could get in the kitchen and help with these muffins.
