  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 stick butter* see Note 1
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, divided plus more for sprinkling* see Note 2
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar* see Note 3
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • sea salt or coarse salt for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line with cupcake liners.
  • In a heat-safe bowl, place the butter and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Microwave for about 45 seconds until butter is melted and chocolate chips are nearly melted. Stir butter and melted chocolate together until well-combined.
  • Place bananas in a large bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher.
  • To the mashed bananas, add chocolate/butter mixture, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix well with a wooden spoon until well-combined.
  • Add dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking soda, and the remaining chocolate chips. Mix well until dry ingredients are completely incorporated.
  • Spoon batter into muffin tin (or liners) until about 3/4 full.
  • Top each muffin with 5-6 more chocolate chips.
  • Bake 20-22 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean or muffins spring back when lightly touched.
  • Sprinkle tops lightly with sea salt.


Note 1: 6 tablespoons of olive oil or vegetable oil can be substituted for the stick of butter-just don't expect quite the decadence!
Note 2: Any type of chocolate chips can be used. I typically use semi-sweet but whatever you have on hand works!
Note 3: White sugar is fine to substitute!
