Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Sharing is caring!

Use up your over ripe bananas in these muffins! The bananas make them moist and sweet. And the combination of banana and chocolate is just perfect! 

Between after school snacks and lunchtime snacks, my kids are always looking for something for something to eat. Their latest thing is “they’re tired of eating the same ‘ole thing”. Who says that!?

I really like to bake my own snacks for them so I can have some control over the ingredients. These Banana-Chocolate Chunk Muffins are perfect for either a healthy dessert or an afternoon snack.

How to Make Banana-Chocolate Chunk Muffins

You will need: ripe bananas, almond or peanut butter, maple syrup, an egg, vanilla extract, flour, baking soda, salt, chocolate chunks or chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, combine the bananas, almond butter, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract. Whisk briskly into a fairly smooth batter.

Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and stir to combine. Fold in the chocolate until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

Divide the batter between the 8 muffin cups and place in the pre-heated oven to bake until cooked through and puffy, approximately 18-20 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.

Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from the muffin tin to serve. Enjoy!

Tip: When my bananas are ripe or over ripe, I peel them and put them into freezer bags and freeze. This way I always have ripe bananas to make recipes just like these Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffins!
