Chocolate and Banana in one tasty bite! These Muffins are delicious slathered with Nutella or creamy butter.


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 medium bananas, mashed
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened baking cocoa


  1. 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).
  2. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Divide batter in half.
  3. To one half of the batter, mix in the baking cocoa.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
