Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

You have got to try these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins!  My 5 year old asked for a cupcake maker for Christmas.

It was the one thing she begged for.  I got it for her.   I was thrilled she was taking an interest in baking!  The cupcake maker came with a book full of recipes, but none of them were whole foods based.  I had 3 ripe bananas I needed to use, so I created this recipe for banana chocolate chip muffins.

These healthy muffins are gluten free and vegan, with very little added sugars!  The super ripe bananas were very sweet on their own.  I made some of the muffins in the cupcake maker, and the rest in a jumbo muffin pan for my husband.  I will write the recipe for an oven though.

These must have been good because the girls ate every single mini muffin from the cupcake maker!  There were seriously none left!  I am glad I taste tested one right out of the oven!

This recipe is super easy with only 8 ingredients!  They are seriously good.  Light and fluffy!  If you like this recipe, you may also like my banana blueberry muffins or my chocolate zucchini muffins.

I filmed a short video for this recipe. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.

  1. I am making these as soon as my bananas ripen...your banana chocolate chip donuts were requested more than once during Christmas weekend. Yummy!
      1. My muffins came out extremely dense. What did I do wrong? I would greatly appreciate any tips. I used regular liners in a muffin pan. Please help!!
          1. Yes, I followed the recipe exactly. I noticed there were only seven ingredients under the recipe where the header said eight ingredients. Would something like baking powder help? Thanks!!
  2. Hi Melissa, Can you make this with normal flour? If so here in the UK we have plain flour and self raising which has added raising agents. Which flour would you suggest? Many Thanks Nina ps Happy New Year + I love your site.
          1. I use rolled oats and I grind them in the blender. Just blend until they turn to powder. It will be slightly more coarse than store bought oat flour, but it still works great.
  3. Melissa you.are.brilliant! I am SO incredibly greatful you share your recipes. Just made these. I grind my own oat flour and I followed the rest of the recipe to a T. Perfect.
  4. I printed and followed the recipe before it was edited to include baking powder (so I didn't add it). Half of the recipe has already been baked before I looked here and saw the change. Is there anything I can do to save it? Thanks!
  5. I made these last night. I used whole wheat flour. I had to cook them an extra 10 mins. but they are great! (my over cooks slow, but I was really surprised how much longer I had to cook them.
  6. Love your website! Transitioning my family of 8 to whole foods....very slowly ;-) Got these in the oven now for after school snack ...can't wait to try them!
  7. I love this recipe! I make them all the time when I have bananas to use up. Last time I added some natural peanut butter to them- so good! Question: Did you come up with any cupcake recipes for the cupcake maker? I'd like to make some for an upcoming birthday. Thanks :)
    1. I made this recipe in my cupcake maker yesterday. I only used 2 cups of flour and subbed applesauce for the oil. They tasted like little brownie bites.
  8. Thank you SO much! Just made these today and they were AMAZING! So excited to start using oat flour instead of regular flour! You've changed my world!
  9. Just about to take these out of the oven and realized I used baking soda instead of baking powder! Any suggestions? They smell yummy!
