Cook Time25 mins


  • 3 ripe bananas well mashed
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups dark chocolate chips or chunks


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease muffin tin or line with cupcake liners.
  • In a mixer with paddle attachment, combine mashed bananas, butter, peanut butter and brown sugar.
  • Add in egg and vanilla and mix.
  • Add 1 cup flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Mix until just moistened.
  • In a small bowl, mix chocolate chips and 1/4 cup flour, just to coat the chocolate chips (this keeps them from falling to the bottom of the muffins.
  • Using a spatula, fold in chocolate chips.
  • Divide batter evenly among the 12 cups. Batter should fill the cups all the way full.
  • Bake 22-25 minutes, or until tops are golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow muffins to cool 10 minutes in pan, then remove to wire rack to cool completely, or serve warm.


If you don't have dark chocolate chips you can substitute semi-sweet.
If I know I'll be using my mixer, I first add the bananas and let the mixer do the mashing!
