Banana chocolate chip muffins recipe

This classic banana chocolate chip muffins recipe is easy to make in less than 30 minutes! To make the muffins, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Mix and set aside. In another bowl, mix together bananas, sugar, egg, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture until moistened. Fold the chocolate chips into the batter.

Divide the batter evenly between 10 muffin cups lined with paper liners. Combine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle the topping over the muffins.

Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.

Freezing muffins

Muffins can be frozen for up to three months. To freeze muffins, place them in an airtight container and freeze. We use plastic bags and squeeze out as much air as possible before freezing to keep the muffins fresh. Thaw just before serving.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

You can omit the chocolate chips, if desired. But don’t forget the muffin topping! The topping to these muffins isn’t really a crumb topping, because it isn’t as thick or crumbly as the topping we use for pumpkin muffins or coffeecake muffins. Instead, the topping does a crispier muffin top, just like you would find on a classic bakery style muffin. These chocolate chip muffins are so tasty, you will want to make them again and again.
