Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins



This is another favorite banana muffin recipe of mine.    If you cannot already tell, I have a banana obsession!!  My blog recipe for Donna's Banana Muffins (which are fabulous, by the way)  is great for anyone with food allergies and vegans.  It is a dairy-free, egg-free version.  If you don't like chocolate chips, just substitute nuts.  This is the muffin of choice for my kids.  They always ask for these for breakfast.  I have made them healthy enough that I don't mind feeding them chocolate chips in the morning. Enjoy~

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

3 medium very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup white wheat flour (can also use spelt or unbleached all purpose)
3/4 cup oat flour
3/4 cup natural brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 egg
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1 tsp good quality vanilla
3/4 cup mini or regular chocolate chips (use semisweet or 60% cacao)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients, including sugar.  Whisk until well mixed.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine banana, vanilla, egg, coconut oil and yogurt.  Make sure that the coconut oil isn't warm or it will solidify in chunks in your batter.  It must be soft but make sure it has completely cooled before adding to your mixer.  Mix until well incorporated on medium speed.  Stir in flour mixture and chocolate chips. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.  Fill 16 muffin cups with batter.  Bake for 22-25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool on wire racks.  Enjoy~

  1. This sounds very much like my basic muffin recipe; I've made all kinds of variations on this! You could replace the bananas and chocolate with fresh or frozen blueberries; I've also made some with Craisins and fresh orange zest, or raisins with a teaspoon or two of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg.

    I think the raw sugar is so important here... makes that top nice and crunchy!!
