I love having something simple for an afternoon snack, and these chocolate banana muffins always hit the spot. These chocolate banana muffins are a spin-off of a classic. They’re really easy to make, they use basic ingredients, and, although they’re muffins, they taste like brownies, which no one is ever upset about. They also freeze really well, so make extra and save them for a busy week!
Chocolate Banana Muffins
Another reason these banana muffins are great is that they use super basic ingredients. I make them any time I see a few bananas that are getting into that overripe stage.
This is all you’ll need! I almost always have these ingredients in my pantry.
Put all the wet ingredients and the bananas in the mixer first. I like to use the whisk attachment on my stand mixer to really get the banana mixed in.
Then add the dry ingredients and mix it all together.
I chose to make a combo of larger muffins and mini muffins. The mini ones taste like those (expensive) two bite brownies you can get at the store).
I’m not joking — these really do taste like brownies! Whether you make them larger or smaller or a combo of both, I promise they won’t laste long. As soon as they’re cooled off, I freeze some so that they don’t all disappear on the first day.
