These are the easiest banana muffins you will ever make. One bowl, no weird ingredients, and so moist and delicious. I give lots of options and substitution ideas, too! Make a batch of these Easy Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins and enjoy them with a creamy cup of coffee. You won't regret it!
I always seem to have a few neglected, over-ripe bananas lying around, so we make a lot of these muffins. The oil keeps them moist, the small amount of sugar keeps them a bit healthier, the spices keep them interesting, and well the chocolate chips are always a good idea. For a real treat, have one warm with some salted butter. Heaven.
Banana Muffin Options
Feel free to switch up the spices, use just cinnamon if that's your favorite or leave the spice out all together if it's not your thing. Use chocolate chunks or chips or again, leave them out for a great, simple muffin. And any plain oil will do here, I've used extra light olive oil, peanut oil, canola oil, or my favorite: grape seed oil. Just use a neutral, light oil. Also, yogurt, sour cream, or buttermilk all work well. I'm telling you these are the easiest and most laid-back muffins you could ever make!
Keeping this post short and sweet, just like these muffins!
Here are the old photos from October 13, 2013 when I originally posted this recipe! I made them mini, which you could totally do here. This recipe should make 24 mini muffins or 12-18 large muffins. I find muffin tins vary quite a lot, so just fill then to the top and make as many as you need to!
