  • Muffin pan


  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed well
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • Prepare the banana bread muffins by whisking together the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the sugar, vegetable oil, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla until well combined. Add the mashed banana and mix well.  
  • Alternate mixing in the dry ingredients and the buttermilk to the banana mixture until just combined. 
  • Fold in the chocolate chunks and chocolate chips. 
  • Pour the batter equally into the muffin pan filling them to the top. Sprinkle some coarse turbinado sugar on top of each muffin.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and continue to cook for 13-15 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
    Side Note: Starting the baking at a higher temperature then reducing it helps make the muffin dome.
  • Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for a few minutes before putting them on a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve and enjoy.
