Sweet, yet filling, these muffins are a great breakfast or snack option. Bananas and chocolate chips are a natural pair, and the vanilla or maple glaze adds a nice twist.

Ingredients (17)

Muffins

Glaze

Start Cooking

Prepare the Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. In one bowl, cream together the first seven ingredients in the order listed.

  3. In a separate bowl, mash the two ripe bananas and mix in baking soda dissolved in one teaspoon boiling water.

  4. Add the banana mixture to the first bowl and cream together.

  5. Add the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts (if using), and mix by hand.

  6. Thoroughly grease a muffin tin and fill the molds about three-quarters of the way. Be aware that these muffins do grow while baking.

  7. Bake the muffins at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and check after 17 minutes. The edges will be slightly browned when the muffins are ready.

  8. Remove from the oven, and allow muffins to cool completely before glazing.

Prepare the Glaze

  1. In a small bowl, place the ingredients in the order listed.

  2. With a fork, whisk the ingredients thoroughly to create a medium consistency.

  3. When the muffins are completely cooled, lightly dip their tops into the bowl of glaze and place them upright on a plate to dry. Allow the glaze to drip over the edges of the muffins for a nice effect.

    I highly recommend this recipe. Really fluffy and flavorful - and healthy too! I used whole wheat flour and skipped the chocolate chips entirely - put walnuts instead. Definitely making these again.

    Easy to make and came out great

    I skipped the glaze and put only 1 cup of chocolate chips. Came out truly delicious! Great recipe

    Absolutely Delicious!

    I found this recipe after I had 2 bananas that needed to be used. I chose this one since it seemed simple. It was a winner in my house! It went so quickly that I had to make another batch. Interestingly, when making my second batch, I used half regular and half mini chocolate chips and it came out much better. I also didn’t use a full 2 cups of chocolate chips. Thanks for an amazing melt in your mouth recipe!

    is it possible to make this into a bread or cake in a loaf pan? if so, how much longer should it bake? thanks

    You can totally do that. With ovens so finicky and pan size so varying. I start on the lowest time and keep checking that the tops are firm and that a toothpick comes out clean.

    1/2 cup flour?

    Is 1/2 cup flour correct? I assume the recipe really means 1 1/2 cups, as muffin batter is not normally so thin.

    It's a typo, it's really 1 and 1/2
