Ingredients1 h 15 m servings 332
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
- Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
- Combine white sugar, brown sugar, and 1/4 cup butter in another bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in egg. Mix in mashed bananas. Add flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with buttermilk, stirring after each addition. Fold chocolate chips into the batter.
- Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool cupcakes on a wire rack, about 30 minutes.
- Beat cream cheese and 3 tablespoons butter in a bowl until smooth. Add vanilla extract. Beat in confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time, until frosting is smooth.
- Spread frosting over cupcakes.
- Cook's Note:
- I love putting chocolate chips in my banana bread, but if you want to eliminate them or substitute nuts or something, all the better. I also like to decorate them with a cute chocolate chip on top.

Super moist and delicious! The cream cheese frosting just takes this over the top...the whole family loved them. This is a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Great recipe though a bit too sweet for my taste. Others loved them as is, and I prefer them without frosting. Would bake again; especially if I have overly ripe bananas on hand!
Very nice little cupcakes, and a thumbs up from the family for my daughter's birthday cupcakes. I did not use the cream cheese recipe; instead, I used the Easy Cream Cheese Frosting from here. ...
These cupcakes were awesome, they were fluffy and the cream cheese frosting was really good. I will definitely make it again. I received many compliments on them.
