Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Mini Muffins

Sunday, 29 Mar 2009


I had a hankering for a mixture of chocolate and bananas, kind of like those chocolate dipped frozen bananas I had when I was a kid, so I whipped up these mini muffins to replicate that combo.  I looked at a lot of recipes for banana chocolate chip muffins, but none of them had a chocolate batter — just banana with chocolate chips.  So, I concocted my own version.


Here’s the recipe I ended up with:

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 ripe bananas, mashed
3 heaping tablespoons baking cocoa
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray.  Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips in a large bowl.  Melt butter and stir in cocoa until well mixed.  In a medium bowl, mix bananas, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, milk, and butter-cocoa mixture.   Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in wet ingredients.  Stir until just blended.  Spoon batter into mini-muffin cups by the teaspoon.  Bake for 10 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched.  Makes 36 mini-muffins.


When I made this batch, I used two heaping tablespoons of cocoa.  I didn’t think that was quite chocolately enough, so in the recipe above, I’ve recommended three.  Or using dark chocolate cocoa might be good.  The chocolate chips did provide a lot of chocolate flavor, though, particularly because I used regular sized chips in mini muffins.  Also, I used two whole mashed bananas because I really wanted that flavor to come out, and that worked well.  We really enjoyed these and they freeze well, too!
