Let’s talk about mistakes.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Banana Muffins-1

I think I make way too many of them. Yeah. I make a whole lot of those in life for sure, but I learn from those (hopefully). In baking I just end up with a mess.

My problem is I try to change too many things about a recipe and then well, they just fall flat. The flavor may be there, but the texture and shape are lost.

In the process I tear the kitchen apart. It looks like someone tore through there, made a batch of cookie dough and then proceeded to paint the walls with the said cookie dough. Then I will go ahead and start a completely new recipe without cleaning up the cookie dough. I then decide the new recipe is delicious. From here I move the food to the window and start taking an obsessive amount of pictures. And when I say obsessive I mean OBSESSIVE. Like three hundreds pictures. Yes, 300. And Yes, I may only use maybe six or eight of the three hundred.

I know, you can now call me the crazy lady who takes waaay too many pictures of her food.

Anyway, sometimes what I thought was going to be yet another failure turns out to be down right awesome.

Like those Triple Chocolate Cake Balls, Double Chocolate Truffle Cookies Stuffed with Peanut Butter and Vegetable Chip Chicken.

You can add these Chocolate Chip Cookie muffins to that list.

It’s Chocolate Chip Cookie on top and moist Banana Muffin underneath.

Seriously, it is an amazing combo. The cookie muffin! Tastes like a cookie, but soft like a muffin.

Oh, and they are mini so you can eat like three!

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Line a mini muffin tin with mini cupcake liners.
  • Combine the flour, oatmeal, baking soda and salt in small bowl. In a large mixing bowl, or bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the mashed banana. Add the brown sugar, sugar and vanilla extract and beat until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips using more or less depending on how much chocolate you like. Obviously, around here the only choice is - very chocolatey!
  • Drop about a teaspoon or so of batter into each cupcake liner. Liners should be filled pretty close to the top, but with just a little room left.
  • Bake for 13 to 18 minutes or until the tops of the muffins have crisped and turned golden brown. Allow to cool (or not).

    I am not a fan of banana in a recipe but since I had some ripe ones I decided to try yours. And I really like it even if I reduced the amount of brown sugar and used 1 cup of butter (I did not read the comment before making the muffins 😅)
    Thank you for another great recipe

    1. Hi there,
      Happy Monday!! Thanks so much for trying this recipe out, I love to hear that it turned out well for you! Have a great week! xT

    1. Hi Jensen,
      Sure, I would just add a touch more flour. Please let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

    I had so many ripe bananas that I made a few of your banana muffin recipes this weekend which included this one and your cheesecake banana muffins haha. These were amazing and again, super easy to make which I appreciate. I don’t have a mini muffin pan so I used a regular one and they turned out wonderful! I think I overcooked them slightly because they were a bit dry (still incredible though) but that was on me. I love that the banana flavor isn’t overpowering in these either! Thank you so much for posting this recipe!

    1. Hey Erin,
      Thanks for your feedback! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for making it:) Have the best week! xxT

    1. Hi Kyla,
      Sorry, I have not tried this, I would follow the recipe as is. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hey Kelly,
      Sorry for the confusion, you will want to use 1 stick of butter which is equal to 1/2 cup. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know how the recipe turns out! xTieghan

  3. Just to double check, you mean oatmeal and not whole old fashioned oats, correct? Are you just soaking the oats in milk to create a thicker batter or are you actually using cooked oatmeal? Thanks!! Brian

    1. Hi! I use old fashioned oats, yes. Do not use already cooked oatmeal. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan

  4. Really great! made this, everyone loved. I used regular muffin tins. But next time i’ll make 10 or 11, so they are all filled to top to get that cookie look it spreads out to on the top of all of them. Really love the cookie top & muffin bottom.
    Kids loved this. Will make again.
    Thank you.

    1. HI! I mean, 1 stick of butter. So 1/2 cup butter. Make sense? Let me know if you have questions. Thanks!

  5. Oh wow. Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe! I’m going to try it right now!

    I’m so happy and glad that I found your amazing blog by chance, while Googling muffin recipes to bake for my boys’ breakfast tomorrow… (Yes, I’ve been living under a rock!)

    Thank you! I’m bookmarking your blog right now! :o)
