Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins


Everybody needs an amazing recipe that uses up those ripe bananas, look no more my friends!  These Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are sure to please even the pickiest eater!

These are my kids most favorite muffins.  I love them for the fact that they use up those mushy bananas, so no waste!


I can’t stand to eat bananas when they are soft and mushy, ripe bananas do not sit right in my mouth, so I’m very glad I use them up in this recipe!  This is also a good recipe to make gluten free, just sub out the all-purpose flour for gluten free flour and enjoy!

LittleChef’s can do this entire recipe on their own, just help with the oven.  I also like to make this into mini muffins.   For some reason miniature food is such a big hit with little hands 🙂
