Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

The other morning I woke up at 5a.m. and I couldn’t fall back asleep.

I uncharacteristically decided to get up, get ready for my day and make something special.

Mornings are not my jam.

Breakfast is not my meal of choice.

Give me steak salad at 6p.m. and lets just skip mornings all together. Please.

But I digress.

By the time I decided I might make banana bread and found a recipe, the 50 minute cook time was too long. So… I instead came up with these muffins which took less than half the cook time that bread does.

I’d imagine you can use most any banana bread recipe, but these turned out so nice I wrote it down for later!


{Makes about 3 dozen…}

Place in mixer bowl:
2 cups of sugar
4 cups of flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbsp. sour cream
4 Tbsp. Apple sauce (optional!)
4 eggs
1 cups softened butter
3 ripe bananas


On low, add:

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

– Preheat oven to 350°
– Mix all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in mixer bowl until well combined.
– On low, add chocolate chips. Mix until just combined.
– Pour into muffin tray. Be sure it’s greased or use paper liners so they don’t stick.
– Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
– Bake for 18-20 minutes. Until just golden.
– Let then rest for 5 minutes and serve warm, with butter.
