Banana chocolate chip muffins

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law, Carla. These are easy, tasty muffins and are a great way to use up those old bananas.

1 stick butter, softened
1 1/2 c. sugar
4 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. milk
2 1/2 c. flour (I like to use 1/2 wheat flour, 1/2 white)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 c choc. chips (I use mini chips for mini muffins)

Mix butter and sugar. Add bananas, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Mix in flour, salt, and soda. Stir in choc chips. Fill greased muffins tins almost to the top. I would recommend using greased tins instead of cupcake liners... otherwise you wouldn't get the yummy crystallized (for lack of a better word) outside - the best part.

Mini muffins: 400 for 10 min, or until done. Makes about 4 doz
Regular muffins: 375 for 16-20 min or until done. Makes about 2 doz
Loafs: 350 for 50-60 min. Makes 2 smallish loafs. I 1 1/2 the recipe to make my loafs bigger, and cook at 325.


  1. My girls love to make muffins. I'm glad to have another use for those old bananas.

  2. I tried banana muffins from a mix once, and they did not taste very good. I am excited to try this one! We always have bananas sitting around.

  3. I made these today. Even the non-banana kids liked 'em. They were very easy too. I can't stop eating them.

  4. I made these for Activity Days tonight and they were a hit. Mark took some to his High Priest meeting and they were a hit. That is an amazing age range! Thanks Amy!

  5. I made these for the scouts this afternoon. They're so good they might be gone before they get here.
