Chocolate Banana Muffins with White Chocolate Chips

Chocolate Banana Muffins with White Chocolate Chips

Using overripe bananas has become a Sunday tradition.  On a Friday I will stop at my local fruit and vege shop and grab the overripe banana trays that are only $1 ready to bake with them on Sunday.  I vary between loafs and muffins and this week I found a packet of white chocolate buttons in the cupboard so decided to include them in this easy one bowl hand mix muffin recipes.

Chocolate Banana Muffins with White Chocolate Chips


2 Overripe Medium Bananas, mashed
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Raw Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Grape seed Oil (or any other unflavored oil like sunflower)
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 3/4 Cups Plain Flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Bicarbonate Soda
2 Tbs Black Chia Seeds (optional)
1 Cup White Chocolate Buttons, reserve 12 for the tops of the muffins


  1. Place the first six ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to mix until just combined.
  3. Spoon into a lined 12 hole muffin tray and then place the white chocolate buttons on top of each.
  4. Place into a 180 degree Celsius oven to bake for 15 minutes or until they bounce back when touched.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tray before removing and allowing to cool completely on a cooling rack.

Makes 12-15

Store in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.

Freezer friendly – wrap in cling wrap and freeze for up to 3 months.  Alternatively they can be placed in a freezer safe container and frozen unwrapped in that.

    Hi, was this list amended to add cocoa powder? As when I made these when they were added to the site there wasn’t cocoa powder?

      Hi Jade, yes I had left the cocoa powder out. In saying that they can be made with or without the cocoa powder.

    Hi Amanda, all good! We actually really enjoyed them without the cocoa. Am I over working the batter is this why the choc chips sink to the bottom? Thanks 😀

      I find it depends on which choc chips I use. The large ones that I used in this recipe do tend to sink because of there size, smaller ones will stay spread through the muffin once cooked.
