How To Make Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

To make easy banana chocolate chip muffins:

Tips And Substitutions

  • For banana coconut muffins, add 1/4 cup of shredded sweetened coconut.
  • Make sure to just mix the muffin batter until combined. Over mixing will cause them to taste dry, and can even prevent them from rising all the way.
  • We like to grease and flour the muffin tin. Alternatively, you can use muffin liners for easy clean up!
  • Adding the chocolate chips into the flour mixture coats them in flour. This prevents them from sinking in the batter while the muffins bake.
  • We love heating the muffins up for 5-10 seconds in the microwave before enjoying them.

Storing Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Banana chocolate chip muffins will last about 6 days on the counter. Just keep them in an airtight container. You’ll notice after about 6 days, they will begin to go stale.

To freeze banana chocolate chip muffins, place them in a plastic freezer bag once completely cooled. They will keep for up to 8 months. Defrost them on the counter before enjoying!
