Chocolate Banana Muffins

I’m on a roll with easy breakfast recipes lately – and my family is loving it! These Chocolate Banana Muffins are moist and full of delicious flavor. PLUS – they’re super quick to make, especially if you just bake them the night before and serve them in the morning!

If you’re like me, you ALWAYS have bananas around – I mean, they are one of the least expensive fruits you can get, right? From snacks, to a side of fruit, and now in yummy banana recipes, they’re perfect. My kids had been asking for chocolate muffins for breakfast, so as I was trying to decide which recipe to put together, I looked over at our basket of bananas and saw several of them getting to that perfect banana-bread level of ripe. Score – chocolate banana muffins were born!

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees F. Bake or line 18 muffin cups (I only have 12-cup pans, so had to do a pan and a half). Set aside.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a mixer and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Scoop into the prepared muffin cups and fill about 3/4 of the way full. The rise a tiny bit, but not TONS.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool, then either serve or store in an airtight container!

These turned out amazing, and now I want to try a few variations of it! What would they be like with pumpkin or vanilla chips? Perhaps tossing in some almonds or walnuts would really bring it to a new level. Anywho – these are a great breakfast to start the day off, as well as a great after school snack idea! Enjoy!
