1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (180g) 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ tsp salt 2/3 cup sugar (113g) 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips plus more for the tops if desired 3 medium ripe bananas or 1 cup of mashed banana 1/3 cup melted butter slightly cooled (75g) 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla (5ml)
Preheat oven to 375F and line a muffin tin with papers.
Combine flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar in a bowl then whisk together and set aside.
Mash bananas in a large bowl, add the egg, melted butter, and vanilla then mix to combine.
Add the dry to the wet and fold together with a spatula until almost combined. Add the chocolate chips and continue mixing until distributed and the batter is combined.
Distribute the batter to the muffin tin and top with additional chocolate chips if desired.
Bake at 375F for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
To check the muffins are done insert a toothpick into the center of one muffin and if it comes out clean with no wet batter they're ready.
You can also fold some nuts into the batter to switch it up slightly, 1/2 cup of walnuts and pecans would work really well!
You can add in any kind of chocolate you like from milk, dark or white.
You can omit the chocolate chip altogether if you like or swap them for nuts or raisins.
You can also add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the batter it's a super delicious addition during Fall.
If you'd like to make a whole loaf rather than muffins then follow my recipe for
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. It's important to use ripe bananas because underripe bananas won't mash properly and will cause a lumpy batter. If your bananas aren't quite ripe enough follow my directions below to ripen them quickly at home.
How to ripen bananas - If your bananas are not quite ready or ripe you can easily ripen them in an oven so they are ready to use. Place them on a baking sheet and bake the bananas with the skin on for 10 minutes at 350F. let them cool slightly before using.
Storage - The muffins will keep well for 5-7 days in an airtight container or can be frozen for up to 3 months.
