Chocolate Banana Muffins Ingredients

These Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are a real treat for breakfast or any time of the day. I mean, it’s chocolate and bananas – you can’t possibly go wrong. Plus, these muffins are quite easy to make! A great way to use up old bananas, too. You likely have most of the ingredients for these muffins on hand so that makes it even easier. They also come together in under an hour so these can easily be a weekend morning surprise for your crew.

This is also a great recipe for young bakers. Most of the steps are quite easy and fun. I remember being little and mashing the hell out of some bananas for banana bread. And you certainly don’t need a stand mixer for these. You don’t even need a hand mixer, really. If you’ve got a whisk and mixing spoon, you’re good to go.

These double chocolate banana muffins were quite popular at our house and I hope they are at yours, too. If you give them a try, let me know what you think in the comments. I’d love to also see a picture as well. Share one with me on Instagram (@bdhbakes).


  • Preheat Oven to 350º 
  • Combine Dry Ingredients 

    In a medium size bowl, add your flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt and baking powder. Whisk them all together to combine and evenly distribute.

  • Mash Bananas 

    In another medium bowl, mash your bananas with a fork until they are a thick paste and there are no more large chunks. You need 1 1/2 Cups which you can get from about 4 bananas.

  • Mix Wet Ingredients 

    Add the mashed bananas into a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the egg and vegetable oil as well. Mix these three ingredients together until well incorporated. Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer on medium for about 2 minutes.

  • Add Dry Ingredients 

    Now, add the dry ingredients from our bowl in step 2 to our large mixing bowl. To make sure the dry ingredients are evenly incorporated, you'll want to add about 1/2 cup at a time and mix on low in between additions. Mix on low for only about 30 seconds or just until each 1/2 cup addition no longer looks dry. Continue until all of the dry ingredients are added.
