Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

When I first started this blog I posted a recipe for banana muffins, and while that one is a family recipe that's been passed down through generations, I actually think this recipe is much better (sorry great great great grandma!). I made these muffins on Sunday for my family and as of today, there are only 2 left (out of 2 dozen). I love that they have oatmeal in them, it makes them a little more hearty and filling. And I don't think there's a better flavor combination than bananas and chocolate-it's one of my all-time faves! Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (mini, semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or whatever you like to use)


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat egg, oil, and sugar until smooth.
  • Stir in bananas.
  • Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Stir into the banana mixture just until moistened.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
  • Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
