Ingredients needed to make this recipe

Inside these muffins, we find the basic ingredients for this type of recipe, namely: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla, egg, butter, brown sugar, liquid cream. I give you the details of the quantities in my recipe at the bottom of the page.

To make these chocolate banana muffins, you will of course need bananas: take them ripe (all spotted is perfect). The riper they are, the more fragrant muffins they will give you!

On the chocolate side, I opted for large chocolate chips : it is easily found in supermarkets in the pastry department. Their size is bigger than the classic nuggets, I find the result even better for muffins. If you can't find any, don't panic, the classic nuggets work very well!

How to make chocolate banana muffins?

So we start by preparing the muffin batter by mixing the dry ingredients on one side. Mash the ripe bananas with a fork then add the other ingredients of the recipe.

All that remains is to add the dry ingredients to the dough. At this stage, it is important to do not over mix the dough muffin to ensure proper baking and rising in the oven.

Add the chocolate chips last with a spatula, keeping a few to decorate the top of the chocolate banana muffins before baking!

How to make your bananas ripen faster?

An easy trick to implement to ripen your bananas faster (and use them in your recipes). Just put them in a oven preheated to 150° traditional heat. If you let them heat up like this for 30 minutes, whole with their skin on, this will soften them. They will then be ready to use.

How to properly store your muffins?

Once made, I prefer to keep these chocolate banana muffins at room temperature (about 3 days) in an airtight container so that they keep all their flavor. To keep them longer (about 5 days), you can put them in the refrigerator, but they will become a little less soft.

Preparation15 minutes
Baking20 minutes
Total37 minutes
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack, Breakfast
Kitchen room: American, French
Keyword: Muffins
Quantity: 12 Muffins


  • 250 g flour
  • 1 cc baking soda
  • 0,5 cc baking powder
  • 0,5 cc salt
  • 1 cc natural vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 120 g soft butter, melted
  • 110 g Light brown sugar
  • 50 g whole liquid cream 30% mg
  • 3 medium ripe bananas
  • 130 g dark chocolate chips quantity to dose according to your preferences


  • Preheat the oven to 205° traditional heat. Prepare a muffin tin by lining it with paper cases.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside for later.
  • In another container, mash the bananas with a fork (if they are very ripe it is easier).
  • Add the eggs, the warm melted butter, the vanilla and the cream. Mix everything to obtain a homogeneous consistency.
  • Then, incorporate the dry ingredients: mix just enough so that you no longer see any flour and stop. Do not over mix allows the muffins to rise better.
  • Keep a few nuggets aside for decoration then add the rest of the nuggets to the dough, incorporating them with a spatula. Do not overmix.
  • With an ice cream or soup spoon, fill the muffin batter cases almost to the top (see my photo). Place the remaining nuggets on top of each case.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes – it depends on your oven. Muffins should be golden brown. To find out if it's cooked, test the cooking with a wooden pick: it should come out dry or with a few crumbs. Then let the muffins cool on a wire rack.


These muffins will keep for about 3 days at room temperature in an airtight container.
They can be kept for 5 days in the refrigerator, but they will lose some of their softness.

      Hello Sandrine, yes they can be frozen (up to 2 months in the freezer). You can place them in individual bags to prevent them from sticking together. To reheat them, simply let them thaw at room temperature or for a few seconds in the microwave. Goodbye :)
