  • Muffin tin


  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • ¾ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 3 mashed overripe bananas see tip below
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup spelt flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla bean paste or 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ¼ cups mini chocolate chips
  • Turbinado sugar for sprinkling on top before baking


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a standard muffin tin with muffin liners (tip below) and spray with nonstick baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together brown sugar, canola or vegetable oil, bananas eggs, and vanilla bean paste (or extract).

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda, cinnamon, and kosher salt.
    dry ingredients for chocolate chip banana muffins in a mixing bowl
  • Whisk dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just barely incorporated (it's ok to see some streaks of flour!), then carefully fold in chocolate chips.

  • Divide muffin batter between prepared muffin tins fulling about 4/5 of the way to the top. Top each with a sprinkling of turbinado sugar and extra chocolate chips, if desired. (If you fill muffin tins to the very top, cook for 22 minutes!)

  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until a skewer or cake tester inserted into the middle of the muffin comes out clean or with very few moist crumbs on it. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Mini muffins bake in 12 minutes.


  • I like to mash my bananas with a mortar and pestle for a really smooth texture.
  • Time permitting, I like to alternate muffin tins and leave a space between each muffin -- see above -- to help ensure big muffin tops. If you can't do this, no problem. Your muffin tops will be slightly smaller.
  • Can substitute 1 tsp pure vanilla extract for vanilla bean paste.
  • Can add additional chocolate chips on top of muffins before baking if you want the appearance of chocolate on top of each muffin.
