Mini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

My 4-year-old asks me to make banana bread everyday.  He literally cheers when we have bananas that are brown so we can make banana bread!  I thought I would make something a little more kid friendly with our overripe bananas, and he was thrilled!

  1. I only had 2 bananas and thus made a half batch (24 muffins). They were quick to mix up and turned out very well! I didn't have mini chocolate chips, so I just chopped up some regular sized chocolate chips. I echo the other comments about the amount of chocolate chips. I usually love more chocolate, and it was delicious, but I felt that the amount of chocolate was overpowering the yummy taste of the banana. I will definitely make this again, but perhaps lessen the amount of chocolate. My kids love them though! Thank you!
  2. This has become my go to muffin recipe. Tonight I divide the batch. Half I made banana no chocolate chips and half pumpkin. I subbed 1 cup of pumpkin for the the 2 bananas (half recipe), No lemon juice, added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice. They were awesome!
  3. Love this recipe ,, I just took them out of the oven and my 4 year old has already snacked on 3 of them. I suggest you change the serves number from 12 to 48 . I made 24 mini muffins and 12 standard sized muffins. Will definitely be making these muffins again. Thanks !!

    I made these muffins for the first time last week. I didn't have a mini muffin tin so made them regular sized and with regular sized chocolate chips. They were incredible and my hubby said they are his favorite muffins ever. I made them a second time this weekend :)
  5. I made these for my Dayhome kids and they asked for me to make them again tomorrow? So delicious! I followed exact measurements and it made exactly 48 mini muffins. I used 3 bananas and 1 whole bag of mini chocolate chips. ***There can never be TOO much chocolate?

    This recipe turned out great EXCEPT I think if you are going to keep the 2 cups of mini chocolate chips in your recipe that you should advertise it/rename it to "VERY chocolate-y mini banana chocolate chip muffins". I followed the recipe and used 2 cups without thinking, and it came out to be way too much chocolate in a mini muffin for most people's tastes. Your pictures look fine, but they just show the outside of the muffins; when I bite into/cut open one of those muffins, it is very apparent how there are too many chocolate chips on the inside. A bit misleading. Wish I would've paid more attention to the comments before adding the chocolate chips.
