Fudgy Banana Muffins Recipe

Fudgy Banana Muffins Recipe

We love the flavor combination of chocolate and banana. Once when I had no chocolate chips on hand, I made these moist muffins with chunks of chocolate bars instead. My husband likes them even better this way, since they have big bites of chocolate. -Kristin Wagner, Spokane, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:18 servings


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each)


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine bananas, milk, egg, oil and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • 2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups one-third full. Break each candy bar into 12 pieces; place two pieces in each muffin cup. Top with remaining batter. Chop remaining candy bar pieces; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.

"Very good! However, I substituted mini semi-sweet chocolate chips for the milk chocolate candy. Nice flavor!"

"Too sweet. We have another banana muffin recipe that we add chocolate chips to, and it's got a better taste. I had already copied this one into a notebook, and I removed it."

"I am always looking for recipies to use up ripe bananas. These turned out very moist and tender. I liked it because it used less oil and sugar than other recipes I saw. I used chocolate chips instead of candy bars. Definately a do again recipe."
