Ingredients

  • 2 bananas the browner the better
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cups mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • In a bowl with a spout, mash your bananas and add the melted butter and sugar. Whisk to combine. Add the egg and beat well.
  • Add the salt, baking soda, and flour directly to the bowl. Stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Either using the spout of the bowl or a small cookie scoop, divide among the muffin tins and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden. Allow to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack.

Notes

  • There’s always a question around “what size banana does this recipe call for?” For this one, it’s truly a medium banana. For my most recent test, I used one of those gigantic Franken-bananas and a wee little Trader Joe’s one. The recipe came out perfect!
  • Oven time is also always a trick since every oven is different. I started checking at 15 minutes, but 17 minutes was when mine looked perfectly brown.

Gluten-Free

Dairy-Free

  • I didn’t try it, but have to image substituting vegan butter or vegetable oil for the melted unsalted butter would work just fine.
