Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I never really think about baking banana anything until I realize I have a couple overripe bananas. Nonetheless, I am always inspired to try something new and yummy when I have do them. Tonight, I was also craving some chocolate, so I decided to bake some chocolate chip banana muffins. These are definitely a crowd-pleaser (light, fluffy, and delicious). Hope you enjoy!

Oh My Gosh Muffins

Recipe found at


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (I used unsalted butter)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (I used light sour cream)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teapoon baking soda
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I used mini chips)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Lightly grease 24 muffin cups.
  • In a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Mix in banana and sour cream. Stir in the eggs. 

  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix dry ingredients into the banana mixture until evenly moist. Fold in chocolate chips. Transfer batter to the prepared muffin cups, filling each cup about 3/4 full.

  • Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

These could great on your way out the door in the morning, or as a snack during the day!
