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).

  1. Under ingredients you wrote 1/2 oatmeal…… 1/2 cup? Also by oatmeal do you meal like quick cook oats??

    1. Yes, I mean 1/2 cup and I used regular oatmeal, but if all you have is quick that will work to! Thanks for poing this out, I will go an fix the recipe now! Hope you enjoy these!

  2. Love it when mistakes redeem themselves — though I would hardly call this yummy treat a mistake! Thanks so much for sharing on busy Monday!

  3. I didnt see were you figured out why muffins went flat?? Try folding banana in last, like when you make bananna bread. They sound great, going to try them soo. Oh, i made your Cr.Cheese Bananna Bread, it was really good.Nice and moist.. Myself, husband, daughter and son in law really enjoyed.Theres one lg slice left. Wish you could taste the Cr Ch a little more. I think i will omit the vanilla and see what happens. I just realized that i didnt go back to the recipe page to comment….LOL

  7. Yum these sound delicious! I love the combo of banana and chocolate and the cookie-like topping sounds so yummy!

  8. I have a weakness for muffins and yours look incredible. All the photos have my mouth watering, especially the ones that show me the melty chocolate chips! mmmmm mmmm good! I could settle up to a basket of these muffins and a tall glass of milk!

    1. Thank you! Muffins are good and personally I find them easier than a sweat bread. I can never get it to cook in the middle! Thanks so much for reading!

  9. Wow these are amazing, would never have thought to put the two together although chocolate and bananas are pretty much a given 😀 Have to make these!

  10. I for one don’t think it’s possible to bake anything unless you make a mess! The muffins look really good and anything made with chocolate chip cookie is not a mistake. 🙂
