Servings 20 Mini Muffins


  • 1 1/4 cup Mashed Overripe Banana about 3 large bananas
  • 1/3 cup Salted Butter melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup White Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar packed
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • pinch Table Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Mini Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a mini muffin pan with a light layer of butter or oil.
  • Mash the bananas and measure. Pour into a medium mixing bowl and add the cooled, melted butter. Mix well with a hand mixer until smooth.
  • Add the sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla to the mashed banana and melted butter. Mix well until no lumps remain.
  • Add in the baking soda and salt. Fold in with a silicone spatula.
  • Add the flour and chocolate chips at once, folding in gently with the silicone spatula.
  • Use a #40 scoop (2 tbsp. size) to portion the batter into mini muffin tins. If you do not have a scoop, fill the mini muffin tins until they are full and slightly mounded.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean (well, cleanish. You will still see the melted chocolate chips).
  • Cool the mini muffins in the pan for about 10 minutes before removing gently with a butter knife and cooling for an additional 30 minutes or so on a cooling rack.
  • Store in the fridge, covered, for about a week. You can freeze if you want to keep these on hand as a quick snack or lunch box option.
