Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Ingredients

These Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are a real treat for any morning. And boy, are they easy to make! The only challenge with these muffins is timing. You need to have to ripe bananas and you need to make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature. If you can before of both of those things – you’ll have no problem impressing your crew with these for breakfast.

As you can see in the upper, right-hand corner of the recipe card below, Grandma noted this recipe was from her friend Mary Petersen. It wasn’t until after I made these that Mom reminded me that Mary never added salt to any of her recipes! I’ve added it to this recipe and would recommend you do the same. However, these were really good without it, too. I also think you could add a 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and/or a pinch of nutmeg to these, too.

I hope you give these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins a try! If you do, be sure to share a picture with me on Instagram (@bdhbakes) or let me know what you think in the comments.

Steps:

  • Allow Butter and Eggs to Come to Room Temp 

    About an hour or so before you plan to start baking, get your butter and eggs out and allow to rest on your counter until they come to room temperature. About an hour is good but allow at LEAST 30 minutes.

  • Preheat the Oven to 350º 
  • Prep the Muffin Tin with Liners

  • Cream the Butter & Sugar 

    In the bowl of a stand mixer, or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer, cream your ROOM TEMPERATURE butter and sugar until it is well combined. You'll need to mix for several minutes until it's really well creamed. The butter should become a much lighter color.

  • Mix in Eggs, Vanilla and Sour Cream 

    Add your eggs, one by one, mixing in between the addition of each so that they are fully incorporated (about 30 seconds on medium speed). Next, add the vanilla and sour cream and mix again until evenly mixed.

  • Sift Flour, Salt and Baking Soda and Mix In 

    Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda into a large bowl. Add it to the wet ingredients about a 1/2 Cup at a time and mix on low in between each addition until you don't see any dry flour. Do not mix at a high speed or over mix. If you're unsure, mix by hand!

  • Mash Bananas and Coat Chocolate Chips 

    In a small bowl, mash the bananas with the back of a fork. Also, lightly coat the chocolate chips with a little bit of flour. This helps keep the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the batter. I just added the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the bowl I had the flour in and shook it up a bit and that was enough to coat them just a bit.

  • Add Bananas and Chocolate Chips 

    Now add the mashed bananas and coated chocolate chips into the batter and mix on low until it is all well combined and evenly distributed. Do not mix on high and do not over mix!

  • Scoop Batter into Muffin Tins 

    Scoop the batter into each cup in your muffin tin filling each about half way up. I find an ice cream scoop can make it really easy to portion it out and get the better into the cup without making a mess.

  • Bake for 20 to 25 Minutes 

    Bake in your preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes. At 20 minutes you'll want to start checking the muffins. They're done when a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center of a center muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes on a wire wrack.
