Chocolate Banana Muffins
Chocolate and Banana in one tasty bite! These Muffins are delicious slathered with Nutella or creamy butter.
A few weeks ago I set out to make some banana muffins. And then it happened. Severe chocolate cravings.
That’s how these chocolate banana muffins were born! This recipe makes 18 regular sized muffins, for my family we like to double it and keep half in the freezer. It’s nice to pull out a bag of homemade muffins for a quick breakfast treat.
While they are absolutely delicious plain, they are over the top delicious with a spoonful of Nutella! I hope you enjoy them too!

Chocolate Banana Muffins
Yield: 18 muffins
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 16 minutes
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 medium bananas, mashed
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
- In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla. Add mashed banana (I use a stand mixer and just add the whole bananas, letting the mixer mash them).
- Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Divide batter in half.
- To one half of the batter, mix in the baking cocoa.
- Prepare cupcake tin by greasing with baking spray. Drop 2 Tbsp of plain batter into each muffin. Then 2 Tbsp of chocolate batter into each muffin. Should make about 18 muffins.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 16-18 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack. Store in air tight container for up to 4 days, or freeze in ziploc freezer bag for one month. ENJOY.
