Soft and moist banana muffins with melted chocolate chips are the best treat. Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are a great way to use up ripe bananas.

    This recipe is absolutely amazing!
    I made it as is and also added 1 cup of chopped walnuts. WOW!
    I ended up with 18 muffins instead of 12.
    Do you think I could freeze them?

    I made your recipe, for banana cupcakes. Except I made bread instead, without chocolate chips. I did substitute Vanilla extract for Banana extract. It was Delicious! My hubby and so did my neighbor love it. I will be making this again. Thank You!!!

    TOO MUCH BUTTER. The muffins were oozing butter from the top and through the bottom of the cups after I took them out of the oven. I was patting them with paper towels. The muffins were very dense and lacked in flavor. I will not use this recipe again.

    The recipe card says half a cup of butter and then underneath it says 8 tablespoons so maybe she added all of it. Like half a cup of butter and 8 tablespoons makes it a little confusing. Might want to change that! This recipe is divine!

    I also had the same issue ,pools of butter in the bottom of the muffin tins , butter soaked through the paper liner. Never had that happen before with other recipes 🤷🏻‍♀️

    This recipe was fast to make and absolutely delicious! I made the muffins without the chocolate chips because I did not have any on hand. Also, I did not have baking soda, so I used baking powder in lieu of that. However, they were very tasty and super moist. Perfect use of leftover bananas!
