Easy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

one banana muffin with mini chocolate chips


  • 2 ripe bananas (equal to 1 cup mashed banana)
  • 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup + 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pan with liner or spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Peel and mash 2 ripe bananas that are yellow with plenty of brown spots. The bananas do not need to be completely brown on the peel.
  3. Once bananas are thoroughly mashed with only a few small chunks left, add the yogurt, egg, sugar, and brown sugar. Stir until combined.
  4. Add all of the dry ingredients and chocolate chips and gently fold until ingredients come together. Don’t over mix the batter or the muffins will be tough!
  5. Use a large cookie scoop to portion the batter into the muffin pan and bake for 12-16 minutes. 
  6. The muffins are done when you touch the tops and they spring back. If your finger leaves a dent, then they need another minute or two.
  7. Flip muffins out of the pan when they come out of the oven, and let them cool. These muffins can be eaten warm or cool.
