chocolate banana muffins

LOVE these muffins! When eaten fresh, same day, the sugar ontop makes a crunchy top to these moist muffins! After baking, when taking out of the pans, I will sometimes gently tip them sideways to remove sugar that didn't crisp up. Great way to use up bananas that haven't been eaten!

How To Make chocolate banana muffins

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F
  • 2
    In a stand mixer, or large bowl with hand mixer, beat bananas until mostly smooth. Add oil, eggs, and vanilla. Beat until combined.
  • 3
    In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Add to banana mixture and beat until combined, scraping bowl at least once.
  • 4
    Remove bowl from mixer and stir in chocolate chips. Scoop into lined muffin tins, about 2/3-3/4 full. I use a large cookie scoop.
  • 5
    Sprinkle about 1/2 tablespoon of sugar topping on each one.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes or until done. Let rest in tins for 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
