Double Chocolate Banana Muffins
I love sneaking healthy items into things that my kids deem “unhealthy”. As soon as they hear chocolate muffin they think they are getting a special treat and it doesn’t matter what I have snuck into them. These Double chocolate banana muffins and my double chocolate zucchini muffins are two of my kids favorite muffins that I make. Even better no one has realized that they are loaded with healthy bananas while having rich chocolate flavor and chocolate chips in them!
These Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are perfect for using up over ripe bananas. In fact I purposely let bananas get over ripe just so we can make these Chocolate Chip Chocolate Banana Muffins. These Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are so easy to make, you can whip them up for breakfast or brunch and enjoy them right out of the oven.
They are perfectly Bananay (is that a word? It is not) and perfectly chocolatey with the cocoa powder and the chocolate chips.
You can enjoy these homemade banana chocolate muffins right away or freeze them for quick and easy breakfasts, they are perfect for both!
We love these easy banana muffins and I’m sure you are going to love them too! So grab some bananas next time you are at the store, and let them sit on the counter until they are overripe and too gross to eat on their own. Then mash them up too make these Double Chocolate Banana Muffins! You will thank me later I promise!
Oh and I should probably tell you, eating them warm is the BEST! Let the muffins cool for few minutes and then enjoy them and you will have warm, chocolaty goodness. We prefer to reheat ours before eating if they are not right out of the oven, but they are super delicious even when at room temperature.

Tips for Making Muffins
Easy Muffin tin filling. If you are looking for a less messy way to fill your muffin cups this Batter Dispenser with Measurement for Muffins is perfect!
Gently stir the batter. When you are mixing the batter you don’t want to over stir. You also want to make sure you don’t mash the banana chunks when you add them in to the mix.
Use the Best Muffin tin liners. When making muffins I love using silicone muffin cups because they bake nicely and then we can reuse them. I never have to worry about not having muffin cups when baking. You can also get the mini muffin silicone cups to use in the mini muffin pans, that are great for the younger kiddos or if you don’t want to have regular muffins.
Room temperature ingredients. Having room temperature milk, butter and eggs when making muffins is going to give you perfectly fluffy muffins every time. When you use room temperature ingredients you get a smooth mixture that traps the air when mixing and then gives you fluffy muffins as they bake in the oven.
How to Store Homemade Muffins
Store cooled muffins in an air tight container. These muffins will keep for 3-4 days if stored properly.
How to Freeze Homemade Muffins
Once you have baked the muffins, remove them from the muffin tin and allow them to cool completely. Place them in a single layer in a plastic freezer bag and lay flat in the freezer.
Double Chocolate muffins will last up to 6 months in the freezer.
To reheat the homemade muffins remove them from the freezer and heat them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
