Chocolate Banana Muffins

I buy bananas, and two days later, they’re covered in brown spots due to the heat wave we’re having. I was going to make a banana bread, but muffins take less time to bake, and I had to do something with the half bag of chocolate chips in the cupboard! Great with coffee for breakfast.

  • 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas – about 3 medium bananas
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Line a muffin pan with 12 cupcake liners, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mash bananas, add oil and egg.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Stir in sugar.
  4. Add flour to banana mixture, stir to combine, being careful not to over-mix.
  5. In a small bowl, add baking soda and vinegar. Add vinegar mixture and vanilla to the batter, stir to combine, then add chocolate chips.
  6. Spoon batter into the muffin pan, fill them 2/3 from the top. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, checking with a toothpick after 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

    I’m always looking for ways to use up our overripe bananas – these were good!
