  • 2 bananas the browner the better
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¾ cups mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. 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.
  3. Add the salt, baking soda, and flour directly to the bowl. Stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. 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.


- 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.


- I made this recipe with Bob’s Red Mill One to One flour and it was perfect!!


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