Make these yummy muffins for breakfast or for a weekend brunch. Chopped nuts can be added to the batter, if desired.

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 4 large)
1/2 cup (1 stick/4oz/113g) butter or stick margarine, melted
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease 12 large muffin cups.

In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.

In small bowl, blend bananas, melted margarine, milk, eggs and vanilla. Add to flour mixture, stirring only until just blended (do not over mix). Fill muffin cups.

Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let stand several minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool.

Makes 12 large muffins.

Tip: Use a spring-release ice cream scoop to spoon batter into muffin cups.

Best recipe EVA!! I like this recipe if I am broke but need a "munchie" for the kids' lunch or a treat for the kids after school. Much healthier then snackin on a chocolate bar!!!

They are perfect sweetness and delicate. As usual I had to change something - i used yogurt instead of the milk and added almost a quarter cup extra flour since I wanted to fill the cups over the rim (and it worked -- they didn't spill over into oven). I also added dry to wet instead of wet to dry. (Why am I always so difficult?)

These were the absolute worst muffins..the butter was soaked through the muffins cups, they were still soggy on the inside even though the outsides were brown...do not make. I followed the directions EXACTLY.. very disappointed.

Very yummy! I used mini chocolate chips and thought it was an easier eat for my little ones rather than the large chunks of chocolate. Just a thought. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

My family gobbled these up...the entire batch was gone in 3 days. The only changes I made were: 1/2 whole wheat/1/2 white flour and I also added abt. 1/4 c. ground flaxseed. Thank you for this recipe!

I used mini chips and baked them in non mini muffins pans and the were awesome. The ones I made with regular chocolate chips in cupcake liners tasted very good but stuck to the papers.

It came out risen and soft. The only thing it lacked was sweetness. Next time I'd add maybe 1//2 cup granulated sugar.

These muffins were very good, before baking them i read a comment about the butter sinking to the bottom, and that turned out to be true, however i did use butter instead of the recomended margine. Also i would use less of the baking soda and powder just because they kind of have a salty after taste.

Hi tabz, You can usually prevent this from happening if you coat the chocolate chips in a little flour. Good luck....Diana, Diana's Desserts

These turned out fabulously and domed very nicely unlike one of the other reviews I read. (will not dome nicely if over stirred). My son could not wait to try them and ate one soon as it was out of the oven. My son says a definite make again.

Finally!! I have found a great Choc. Chip Banana Muffin recipe.. just made this recipe and the muffins came out exactly what I have been trying to do with other recipes.. they taste amazing.. I did substitute the melted butter for the same amount unsweetened organic apple sauce..and I used vanilla almond milk..instead of milk, and the muffins came out just like from a coffee shop.. sometimes it takes a few tried and tested recipes, but I have found the best one that I will use over and over.. and will have to try more of your muffins recipes for sure.. Thanks!!
