Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are great for the kids snack bag!
Bananas, bananas, bananas, we go crazy for bananas. We use bananas in everything from our amazing smoothie recipes, to a lot of different types of muffins. We love the taste, texture, and the healthy benefits from eating them. I change up the banana muffin recipes, but the kids favorite is still the Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. So they go crazy for bananas, but they go crazy for chocolate too. Who doesn’t? 🙂
I make the banana muffins different ways very regularly. We always have bananas, and when they start browning I slice some up in freezer bags for smoothies and mash them up for the muffins. After I bake the muffins, I keep some in the freezer and grab them as needed. They usually don’t last long. We eat them for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert if they ask for a treat. They’re always good to have on hand.

- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup oat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 large bananas mashed
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted

Preheat oven to 350º degrees. Ovens may vary with temperature.
Spray muffin pan with a non-stick spray, or use paper liners.
In a medium bowl combine flour, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a fork mix the dry mixture so it combines evenly. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl add the bananas and mash them using masher or a fork. Then add the brown sugar, eggs, and melted butter. Mix on a low-med speed until well combined.
Now, add the flour mixture into the mixing bowl with the wet ingredients on low to medium speed; adding a small amount at a time until smooth and well mixed. Fold in the chocolate chips, and walnut if including in the recipe.
