Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins (Recipe)

I don’t know about anyone else but for me baking is calming (at least it can be if I don’t plan too much in one day πŸ™‚ ).

There’s something so relaxing and comforting in mixing all these random ingredients together and them magically turning into something so good. We’ve had a few cooler days off and on the last couple of weeks and it was the perfect time for me to try and catch up on all the goodies. The problem is that whenever I catch up I fall behind again as soon as the kids and husband get home!

One of our household favorites is Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. I usually make 48 in one go and keep some in the freezer but I was running dangerously low on ingredients so I cut back this time. I only doubled the recipe this time and made 12 bigger muffins with 3 giant ones. The husband was happy to see the bigger muffins and I think I might start doing this more often instead of the 48 smaller ones. I find that boys can eat a lot lol. My 12 year old used to sneak four but was satisfied with two this time πŸ˜€

I will share the original recipe for 12 muffins and you can fix it how you see fit for your household πŸ™‚

Oops! Forgot to show the chocolate chips!


  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 300g package of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

In a mixing bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, and eggs. Stir in bananas and chocolate chips.

Combine flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir into mixture just enough to moisten.

Spoon into 12 greased muffin tins (or use liners). Bake at 350 degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes.

Yes, these things are best done in the colder months or on cooler days! If I have to make something, I try to avoid things that require more than 20 minutes of cooking because we’ve also had some hot weather here. About 30 degrees so it’s not quite as “cozy” as your weather πŸ˜‰
Hope you enjoyed your cold soup πŸ™‚


Angie, you could make this diabetic friendly by using sugar substitute, like Splenda. Also, Amazon sells sugar free chips(not cheap). Just thought you might like this.
When I bake now I convert my recipes so that they are diabetic friendly. I do this because, my daughter and best friend are both diabetic. Also, I don’t really need all kinds of sugar.

I really should start using sugar substitute. I have tried a couple of different ones but I find they have an aftertaste. Do you have any recommendations other than Splenda or Equal? I have also used honey but it’s not always an option, depending on what I’m making.
