Following up my popular chocolate chip banana bread, these are my chocolate chip banana muffins! They’re just as moist and are rich with banana flavor. Just like the bread, these muffins are baked with mini chocolate chips so there’s a speckling of chocolate in every bite!


Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • 1 3/4 cups (230g) all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled (can sub gluten free cup for cup baking four)
  • 1/2 cup (105g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 heaping cup (220g) mini chocolate chips, plus more for topping
  • 1 1/2 cups (375g) very ripe banana, mashed (3–4 bananas)
  • 1/4 cup (50g) olive oil 
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (60g) sour cream or full fat Greek yogurt (can sub a dairy free alternative)


Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F and line a cupcake tin with 12 parchment paper liners (I link my favorites down below as the muffins don’t stick to these). This recipe makes 14 muffins so if you have another pan, fill with 2 liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips.
  3. Now for the wet ingredients, make sure to mash and measure the banana to exactly 1 ½ cups. If you’re short, supplement with unsweetened applesauce. 
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the banana, olive oil, eggs, vanilla, and sour cream.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  6. Scoop the batter into the liners, filling all the way to the top. Sprinkle with extra chocolate chips if desired.
  7. Bake at 425F for 10 minutes, then turn the oven to 350F and bake for another 5-7 minutes.
  8. Allow the muffins to rest in the pan for 5 minutes, then carefully transfer to a cooling rack.
  9. Enjoy while they’re still warm! But they’re just as delicious the next day.
