I don’t know if this is too basic of a recipe to be sharing, but even if it is, I absolutely love it. I’ve been making these almost weekly with our extra brown spotted bananas. Everyone really enjoys them. They’re a wonderful, wholesome, protein-packed treat!

I usually avoid sharing muffin recipes. No real reason, I just make the same ones over and over. Either blueberry, banana, or sometimes a good pumpkin muffin in the fall. Something about a muffin recipe usually bores me. Every time I contemplate sharing one I usually decide against it. But I started baking these back in December for Oslo. They ended up turning out so well and they were so easy! Everyone in the family ended up enjoying them just as much as he did!

My mom especially loves them when they’re still warm with the melty chocolate. How could you not?

I based the recipe on my go-to banana bread. My mom was looking for something sweet to give Oslo that wasn’t loaded with sugar. I immediately thought of banana bread.

Oslo loves peanut butter, so I added some to the batter, then mixed in chocolate chips. They couldn’t be easier and he loved them!

Here are the details – these are fast

You’ll need a blender – a food processor works too.

Add all of the wet ingredients to the blender first. Start with the bananas, then peanut butter, coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla. All ingredients I always have on hand.

Blend up the wet ingredients, mashing the bananas. Add the dry, just whole wheat flour (though any flour, even a gluten-free blend works), baking soda, and salt. Then blend one more time to just combine everything.

It’s fine if the batter has some lumps!

The last step is to mix in the chocolate chips.

And then bake! I love to use semi-sweet chocolate chips for these since I wanted Oslo to really enjoy them too. But a dark chocolate chunk would be even healthier and would work really nicely too.

These take about 20 minutes to bake and then you can serve them pretty much right out of the oven.

If you’re eating these warm, I highly recommend a drizzle of drippy peanut butter on top. Oh, and if it is your thing, maybe some sea salt too. Oh my goodness, so insanely yummy, but honestly, these are healthy too.

We love that!

These are also great packed up as a work snack or enjoyed as a mid-day treat. Either way, you and your family are going to love them.

I have a good feeling this is going to be a recipe we all make on repeat. Asher LOVED them! Enjoy y’all!

    I got nervous because I used whole wheat flour instead of whole wheat pastry flour, but they tasted great! My son is never likes healthier versions of recipes and he loved these – didn’t notice a difference! So easy to make, and ready fast.

    I used honey instead of maple syrup. Put everything in a bowl with my hand mixer. No chocolate chips. Made 14. Should have put nuts in them but overall pretty yum. Will have to make these again.

  3. Halved the recipe and it just fit in my large nutribullet cup, used gluten free flour and they turned out great! Best gluten free muffins I’ve made!

    I was really excited to make these muffins using my new Kitchen Aid mixer! I was able to get 18 muffins out of the batter. I used Canola oil, since I didn’t have coconut oil. Yum yum yum is all I can say!!!

    This was so easy to make and the kids loved it. The bananas and chocolate chips were sweet enough and I didn’t need to add in any maple syrup. I have an older blender so it had trouble blending the flour in but a few quick stirs did the trick. I also halved the recipe to make mini muffins and it still yielded roughly 22!

    1. Hey Yvonne,

    These are so delicious warm from the oven with peanut butter & sea salt. Perfect for those over ripe bananas & extra chocolate chips!

    1. Hey Susan,
      Happy Monday!! I appreciate you giving this recipe a try and sharing your review, so glad to hear it turned out well! xT

  7. Hello. I made this morning and though they were very delicious, they were a tad dense. I did use all-purpose flour and almond butter, because of a household allergy to peanuts. Maybe I over mixed them. Maybe it was my flour. Is there anything I could add that might make them a little fluffier? Thank you and as always, we love your recipes ❤️

    1. Hey Tanya,
      Thanks so much for giving this recipe a try! If you can use a pastry flour, these will be less dense:) I hope this helps! xx

        Thanks for responding. Made them again this morning and noticed I went for baking powder instead of soda. Pretty sure that’s what I used yesterday. Baking soda and pastry flour did the trick. So much fluffier today. So yummy too.

  8. These are AMAZING! You can ripen your bananas in the oven too if you need to. Thank you for this recipe! It’s so delicious.

    1. Hey Gia,
