  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 bananas ripe, lightly mashed
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Place rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners.
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large mixing bowl and then mix in lightly beaten eggs, milk, vanilla and melted butter just until combined.
  • Fold in lightly mashed bananas and chocolate chips until well combined.
  • Scoop batter into muffin liners, filling each one fully.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out just about clean. Allow muffins to rest for 5 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a rack to cool completely. Enjoy!


Don’t leave the muffins to cool in the pan otherwise the trapped steam will make the bottoms too sticky!
