Variations of these easy banana muffins:

  • more or less banana-If you want to use more bananas in this recipe, you can add 1 more banana. If you don’t have enough bananas, 3 bananas works as well. 3 bananas also makes this dessert a darker color.
  • more cocoa powder-more cocoa powder would make this chocolate recipe, even more chocolatey!

How to store these chocolate chip muffins:

  • refrigerator-my family always stores all fruit desserts in the fridge. I have stored then in a sealed Tupperware container on the table room temperature before. However, they developed a weird film on them, so I would not recommend that. They will keep longer in the fridge too.
  • freezer-I have not tried freezing these. If you do try it, let me know how it goes!

How to make excellent muffins:

  • beat banana, sugar, and eggs together-this stage is vital because that way it doesn’t have any lumps in the muffins
  • stir together dry ingredients, and combine with wet ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • bake the muffins until toothpick comes out clean!
