Chocolate Banana Muffins

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"These muffins are so moist and full of flavor! I have looked at dozens of recipes and most had too much sugar for my liking. There is absolutely no need for a lot of sugar to make these muffins delicious. Because they have bananas and chocolate chips, I just added 1/2 cup of sugar, which turned out perfect!"

I made no changes.I couldn’t taste the bananas in the final product. I’m not sure whether I’ll make it again or not

These are so good, I might never make banana bread again.

I used applesauce instead of oil (saving it for my friend's popcorn later) and these were easy, moist and very flavorful. Great additional way to use ripe bananas!

This one is a definite keeper. I generally cut the sugar anyway so this was perfect to me. Very moist. I put in a tsp of cinnnamon but couldn't taste it. These are great as they are!

Love these!! Made this recipe twice both times using wax paper instead of muffin wraps- more cost effective & just as appealing. My entire family love that they are not as sweet as store bought...

Delicious!! My family and I loved them!!

Moist, indulgent, dessert-like. This one is a keeper. I followed it exactly except I ended up using 3 medium bananas because they were all going bad. I sprinkled powdered sugar on top before s...

Awesome. No changes. Good way to use up bananas. No banana taste just very moist.

I didn’t have chocolate chips. Used dark chocolate bar and chopped my own chips. Definitely would make again

No changes, delicious, moist, and easy to make. Loved them, will use three bananas next time, more chocolate than banana flavor.
