Banana Chip Muffins Recipe

Joanne Shields' moist muffins showcase bananas and mini chocolate chips. "After the original recipe flopped, I experimented with different ingredients and measurements until I came up with this winning combination," explains the Olds, Alberta cook.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1-1/3 cups)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat egg, oil and sugar until smooth. Stir in bananas. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt; stir into the banana mixture just until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • 2. Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.

"They were good but not my favorite banana muffins. They were more of a bread texture, a bit on the chewy side. I guess we prefer a moist banana muffin or bread mixture. It must be the oatmeal, but there is an oatmeal banana cookie recipe that is wonderful - so definitely a combination of other ingredients that give it the wrong texture for our taste."

"The black squiggly things in the muffins are the banana's seeds. (Bananas are botanically a berry.)

I made these with blackberries instead of the chocolate chips and used just one banana (that's all I had) and added a bit of juice from canned sweet potatoes. They turned out good, but aren't my best muffin."

"Pretty good, but didn't wow me. I did a few changes. I used 4 bananas, a heaping 1/2 cup of oats, regular sized chocolate chips, and made it a loaf instead of muffins. I baked it for 45 mins and it needed more, so it cooked for about 15 mins longer. I think I should've cooked it for 10 mins longer instead of 15. Definitely a hearty bread with the oats in it. I'll prolly make again though."

"This recipe was quick to put together and it tastes delicious!! I was worried the oatmeal would make the muffin grainy, but I wouldn't have noticed the oatmeal if I hadn't seen the recipe. Delicious! Thanks for sharing! :)"

"These are moist and delicious! The recipe made 10 jumbo muffins for me (baked about 25 minutes). I didn't have any chocolate chips, so I crumbled two Peanut Butter Moon Pies in their packaging, then dumped them in - so the muffins had chocolate and a little bit of peanut butter flavoring! Yum - thanks for the recipe :) My favorite breakfast is one jumbo muffin, one link sausage, and one hot cup of coffee!"
