Once again, over ripe bananas were rescued at home and turned into this deliciously soft and spongy muffins. Since my husband loves chocolate, I added chocolate chips.

We love naked cakes at home sans any frosting or fancy sprinkles. I love to bake and though that happens occasionally, I prefer using ingredients that are available at home.

Bananas are consumed as fruit or added to our morning smoothies but few always ripen quickly and then there are no takers. It was then that I decided to bake a batch of these muffins so that they could be consumed over time at home as a snack or dessert.

Ingredients for Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Please note that the alternatives suggested in the recipe (ingredients) are all tried and tested by me. Kindly read before checking the full recipe with measurements in the Recipe Card below.

Whole Wheat Flour – Khapli Wheat Flour. You can use regular wheat flour, maida or all purpose flour too for this recipe.

Ripe Bananas – I had 2 overripe bananas in stock which led to 9 muffins as you can see from the step-wise pictures below.

Note – I used 1 & 1/2 bananas for the muffins (mashed) and the remaining 1/2 banana were cut into 9 slices and decorated on each of the muffins.

Jaggery – No Refined Sugar is my mantra for baking. You can use regular sugar, coconut sugar, cane sugar etc.

Note – Jaggery quality, colour and sweetness differs. You should always taste check and then add.

Milk – I have added organic cow milk for the recipe. This can also be made using coconut milk or any other vegan milk options as available.

Olive Oil – I prefer baking with olive oil. You can use unsalted butter for this recipe. Please melt the butter, cool slightly, measure and add. Ghee is also a good replacement to olive oil and butter.

Chocolate Chips – I have used dark chocolate chips as we love it at home. For kids, I would suggest milk chocolate chips or white chocolate chips as they are a tad sweet and they would love it.

You can add blueberries, raspberries, raisins and any frozen berries of your choice. In Mumbai, finding fresh berries is rare and they are pretty expensive too.

Note – When adding berries, please adjust sugar quantity. Some berries can be quite tart.

Baking Powder + Baking Soda – Must for eggless cakes.

Vanilla Essence – If you like, you can add banana essence for this recipe instead of vanilla.

Once the ingredients are ready, you will also need the below equipments.

List of Equipment needed to bake –

  • Spatula and Whisk
  • 2 Glass bowls – one for dry and other for wet ingredients
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Flour Sifter
  • A square muffin tin – 10.75″ X 10.75″ with 1″ height and 9 muffin liners
  • OTG for baking (to be preheated for atleast 10 minutes at 200 Degree C)

As you can see, the recipe is quite simple with basic baking ingredients, which I am sure is available in your refrigerator or pantry.

These muffins make an excellent gift, can be packed as snack for kids at school or an individual portion size dessert for adults. You can bake these muffins for entertaining or hi-tea parties at home with some sandwiches and savory snacks.

I have baked these so many times in my kitchen and every single time, they are a huge hit among family and friends. The fact that they are consuming whole wheat bakes with no refined sugar makes them super happy and excited.

These Banana Chocolate chip muffins stay fresh at room temperature for a couple of days on your kitchen counter. I personally transfer them to the refrigerator after 24 hours as Mumbai city is quite hot and humid throughout the year.

In the refrigerator, the muffins stay fresh for up to a week. I slightly warm them and enjoy with a cup of black coffee.

Step-wise recipe to bake Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins at home

All the ingredients should be at room temperature.

(1) Once all the ingredients are ready on your counter top, preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 200 degrees C.

Note – I did not have to grease the muffin tray as I placed muffin liners into them and poured the batter directly.

The square tin holds 9 muffins.

If you don’t have a muffin tin, you can place the muffins in a flat tray and bake them. Leave sufficient space in between them.

If you want to bake this as a cake instead of muffin, you can pour the batter into a rectangular baking tin or a square / round tin as well. Ensure the height of the tin is around 2 & 1/2″ height.

Preparing the muffin tray by lining with muffin liners

(2) In a bowl, add over-ripe bananas and mash them well using a fork.

Note – The recipe states 2 bananas. I have used 1 & 1/2 banana for the muffins and the remaining half banana was sliced and topped on each muffin.

(3) Now add the jaggery, milk, oil and vanilla essence. Whisk well until the jaggery melts completely.

(4) In another bowl, sift whole wheat flour (twice), add baking powder, baking soda, a pinch of salt along with chocolate chips.

Dry Ingredients for the banana chocolate chip muffins - wheat flour, chocolate chips, baking soda and powder.

(5) Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well using the spatula. Do not over mix.

(6) Carefully pour the mixture equally into the 9 muffin liners. Place sliced banana on each muffin and press gently.

Note – Never fill the muffin mixture up to the brim. Always leave space for the batter to rise while baking.

(7) Bring down the oven temperature to 180 degrees C and place the muffin tray inside the oven for baking. Bake these at 180 Degrees C for 35 minutes.

Sliced bananas placed over the muffins for decoration.

(8) Once baked, use a tooth pick to check if the centre is cooked. Allow it to cool completely before enjoying with a cup of coffee.

The banana chocolate chip muffins are ready when the skewer or toothpick is clean.

Recipe Notes

  • I have used Khapli wheat flour for this recipe. You can use All Purpose Flour or Maida too. Keep an eye on the baking time as Maida is not as dense as wheat flour. 
  • A tiny pinch of salt is recommended to be added for all chocolate based recipes to balance flavours. It is optional but recommended. 
  • Baking Time depends on the oven. Please keep an eye after 20 minutes of baking.
  • Adding a slice of banana is optional. Make sure the Slices are thick so that they don’t shrink after baking. You can add chocolate chips if you like, instead of banana.
  • The recipe states 2 bananas. I have used 1 & 1/2 banana for the muffins and the remaining half banana was sliced and topped on each muffin. If you are not using the banana slices, mash the banana and use it in the cake.
  • I have used dark chocolate chips for this recipe. You can use white chocolate and or milk chocolate chips.
