Chocolate Banana Muffins recipe with step by step photos. These moist and soft chocolate banana muffins make a great breakfast or a snack and freeze very well for later use.
I love baking with Bananas but anyways who doesn’t?
They make any bake to which they are added super duper soft and moist. These Chocolate Banana Muffins are no less either.
These chocolate banana muffins are super moist with a rich chocolate flavor and guess what!! They have no butter at all and use only vegetable oil and just a handful of ingredients.
They are also good to pack for the kids school snacks box which I often do.
I have to let 2 or 3 of the bananas to become over ripe from the bunch that hubby usually brings home on weekdays especially to bake these chocolate banana muffins.
I chanced upon this amazing and simple muffin recipe on Nigella’s space when I was looking for a very simple muffin recipe that had very little ingredients in them.
These chocolate banana muffins are so fool proof and a definite keeper and you can play with the quantity without worrying and still get the best result every time.
I have not used any flavoring agent like vanilla extract but wanted to enjoy just the banana flavor alone with the chocolate aroma. Make sure you use over ripe bananas for the flavor to come through.
