Chocolate, Banana, and White Chocolate Chip Muffins

It’s so good to be back!  We had a very busy last few weeks.  First, we had friends come stay with us for the weekend before Christmas.  My sister, her husband, and two boys came the following week to celebrate Christmas with us in our new home.  Another set of dear friends came this last weekend to help us celebrate New Year’s Eve.  We have had a full house and it’s been wonderful spending time with our close friends and family.  I hope you all had a fantastic holiday break too!

I found some VERY ripe bananas in the refrigerator while cleaning it out so my daughter decided to do some baking.  She made chocolate, banana, and white chocolate chip muffins.  She didn’t add nuts because she’s not supposed to eat them while wearing her braces.  I talked her out of adding marshmallows because they were already sweet enough.  The batter was really thick and the muffins took a bit longer to cook.  They turned out super moist and so amazing!  They reminded me of a cupcake without frosting.  Both of the kids loved them so much they chose them for dessert after dinner too.  I have a feeling these muffins won’t last long.  My daughter was extremely proud of her creation and deemed it blog-worthy.  Needless to say, I am quite proud of my little baker.

How to Make Chocolate, Banana, and White Chocolate Chip Muffins


  • 1/2 cup of butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed up
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of white chocolate chips

Chocolate, Banana, and White Chocolate Chip Muffins

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees then coat a muffin pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, bananas, and vanilla then continue beating until well combined.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together, mix well. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just combined. Add the 3/4 cup of white chocolate chips then gently mix them into the batter.

Spoon the batter evenly into each muffin tin. Add the last 1/4 cup of the remaining white chocolate chips equally to each muffin, pushing them in gently.

  1. Awesome muffin recipe! I made them on Friday and they were a huge hit with my family ( and me of course!). There is a very slight typo in the recipe; the directions never say what to do with the cocoa. I assumed it went in with the flour though.

    Tell your daughter she is a baking genius and keep up the good work!

    I will be sharing this on my blog tomorrow, with a direct link back to your post, of course. Thanks for sharing!

  2. My husband is not a fan of white chocolate, unfortunately. Would butterscotch be a good replacement or would I be better with a different chip? That is so awesome that your daughter is crative in the kitchen at this age! Thanks for sharing your recipes!

  3. I made these today for snack and dessert. My 3 children loved them!!! The recipe made 16 generous sized muffins.
