Banana Bread Muffins

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 16 mins


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 2/3 cup oil (I used canola)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3.5 oz packet of pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 oz chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 400. Grease and prepare a muffin tin.
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas until they are pretty mushy. Add in the eggs, oil, and vanilla. Mix until just combined. Be gentle.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the sugars, pudding mix, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well making sure all of the ingredients are combined.
  • Sift the dry ingredients into the wet. Gently mix until they are combined. The mixture will look a little bit lumpy and that is ok! You do not want to overmix the batter.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips. You can also add nuts if you are choosing to use them as well.
  • Add the batter to the muffin tin, making sure to fill it the top. If you are looking for a smaller muffin top, only fill the tins 3/4 of the way full.
  • Place in oven and bake for 14-16 minutes, until the tops are a golden brown.
  • Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, take the muffins out of the pan and let them cool on a wire rack.
