These Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are a family favorite, I have made them for the past 14+ years. I originally found this recipe in a fundraiser cookbook from JC Penney associates. This is my boys all time favorite recipe, which they ask me to make it all the time. This post contains some affiliate links. Click here for my full disclosure policy.
I was always looking for a recipe to make with ripe banana’s. My boys did not favor banana bread, it would always go to waste or I ended up eating more than my share. Once I came across this recipe, I knew it was a keeper.
My oldest does not like banana’s, but he somehow managed to eat these chocolate chip banana muffins. As he became older, he finally saw how I made them and questioned why I was putting mashed up banana’s in the recipe. I informed him that this is how the muffins are made,and all the muffins he ate prior to this had banana in it. He insisted that he was never eating these muffins again, that did not last long, although he still wont eat a banana. My youngest will figure out how many muffins each of us can have to split them equally. He will keep count of who ate how many, and how many more everyone is allowed to have. Heaven forbid if his brother eats one more than he did, than he will state that Mack is the favorite son because he had 1 more muffin than he did. This is no joke, my youngest is 16 and still plays this game.
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons sour cream
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 or 3 ripe bananas - I always use 3 bananas
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- Mix all ingredients together until moistened.
- Pour into greased muffin baking tray or use muffin paper liners.
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Recipe makes 12 muffins.
- Add chocolate chips to the tops on the muffins before baking.
I prefer to use my NaturalStone Muffin Pan. I love how golden brown the muffins turn out when using the baking stone. I usually save some chocolate chips and place on top of the batter before baking.
These are the most moist banana muffins I have ever eaten. This will become a family favorite for you too!
