I have been making this recipe ever since I was about 8 years old with my grandma and my mom! I was by NO MEANS a baker of any kind back then, so that just goes to show how easy these are to make!

I honestly think I see a new banana bread recipe daily on social media, do you guys agree? But it does make sense, I think! Bananas are a “low risk purchase” as you can eat them fresh, and if they get overripe you can toss them in the freezer until you have enough to make banana bread (or
banana muffins). Unlike many other foods when bananas go limp and mushy, they can be repurposed. Enter BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFIN GOODNESS!

Banana bread is wonderful, but muffins are quicker, more convenient, easily portable, and taste just as good. I can’t say I prefer one or the other, but I can say that muffins are more practical in my house!

Do these banana muffins taste like banana bread? 

Yes, totally! But they have a lighter, softer, and more buttery texture. You’ll LOVE them.

Can I make these muffins gluten free?

I have never tested this recipe with gluten free flours! I have had success with buckwheat flour in other muffin recipes, however I typically have to use a different ratio of flour! If you try using another type of flour please let me know in the comments!

Can I freeze These muffins?

Yes! I suggest you freeze them if you can’t enjoy them within three days. Let the muffins cool out of the oven, arrnage then on a baking sheet and flash freeze them for 20-30 minutes until solid. Then freeze in an airtight container. This will ensure the muffins don’t all stick together in the freezer! They easily stay fresh in the freezer for 2-3 months. I defrost mine in the microwave or let them thaw on the counter!

Pro Tips for Moist Banana Muffins

These three points are KEY for achieving the most tender and moist muffins:

  • Use VERY ripe or frozen bananas – Underripe bananas are very difficult to mash and won’t incorporate into the batter well. I find over ripe bananas to also be sweeter, yielding a much better flavour.
  • Don’t over-bake – Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center after 19 minutes and continue baking only if you see wet batter on the toothpick. The longer the muffins are baked, the drier they become.
  • Store in an air tight container – muffins will stay fresh for 3 days, after that I suggest freezing them if you won’t be consuming them!
