Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins Recipe

LP and I bake all the time now and I always try and think of something new to bake to keep it interesting for her. We had some old bananas to use up and I didn’t fancy making a Banana Loaf again so instead we made Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins.

Why should you make Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins?

Banana muffins are a really lovely breakfast idea but also a snack that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. The addition of a few chocolate chips make these muffins a really lovely treat too. We have them as an alternative to chocolate brioche and they keep really well for a few days in an airtight container.

These Chocolate Chip and Banana Muffins are a great addition to any lunchbox, can be enjoyed as a picnic staple and are easy to take with you on any day out or little adventure. Add to that the fact they use up old bananas, reducing waste, and you have a cake that really ticks every box.

The children love these muffins. They are easy and quick to make, the children can make them pretty much by themselves and it’s a bake they can really get involved in. Plus, they taste great too which is always a bonus. They really are a lovely bake the whole family with enjoy.

This recipe makes 24 good size muffins but we make half size ones that are great for the kids too. They also freeze well so are great to make in big batches but you could also halve the mix to make twelve good size muffins or even 6 if you wanted just a small number for a day or two or to enjoy over the course of a weekend.
