Mini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

img_5338My friend introduced this recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie to me at work and it’s my go to for easy brunch, sweet treats, travel snacks, etc. Once you get the initial ingredients (I’m sure you may have many of them already), you’ll be able to make the recipe over and over again. I like it when I happen to buy a bunch of bananas and they start to go bad before I can eat them all. I just peel them, put them in a freezer safe Ziploc bag and use them later in this recipe

Makes: 24 mini muffins

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • Oven
  • 2 medium bowls
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups (1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup)
  • Measuring spoons (tablespoon (Tbsp), teaspoon (tsp), 1/2 teaspoon, 1/8 teaspoon)
  • Mini muffin pan
  • Mini ice cream scoop or spoon



  • Cooking spray
  • 2 medium bananas (or whatever fits in 1 cup)
  • 2 Tbsp milk (I used 2% but use whatever you have)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp white or apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350°F

2. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray

3. Whisk together the 2 bananas, 2 Tbsp milk, 2 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp vinegar, and 3 Tbsp vegetable oil in the 1st bowl

4. In the 2nd bowl add 1 cup flour, 1/2 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, and 1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp sugar

5. Pour ingredients from step 3 (the wet) into ingredients from step 4 (the dry)

6. Stir until evenly mixed

7. Use mini ice cream scoop or spoon to get batter into the greased muffin pan, filling about 2/3 of the way

8. Put in the oven, setting the timer for 15 minutes

9. After 15 minutes, remove the muffin pan from the oven


10. Remove from pan, let cool, and enjoy! (Or store for later eating)

My muffin pan is well greased and the muffins come out easily. If you know that yours has trouble sticking you may want to add liners.
