No Mess Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

Have you ever let your bananas sit out on the counter and then forget about them until they were basically completely black? This happens to me every so often, but I've found I can make the best of this situation by making banana muffins!

Most banana bread calls for extra ripe bananas because they are much sweeter when they're brown than when they are yellow.

Plus, the bananas are extra soft, which results in a super moist muffin (sorry for those use of words side-by-side).

No mess, no stress! Of course, for an environmentally friendly alternative, you can totally whip these muffins up in a bowl too.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. In a gallon sized baggie, mash the bananas. Then add the eggs and sugar. Release the air from the bag and squeeze and squish until the eggs and sugar are mixed into the bananas.
  2. Open the bag and add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour. Again release as much air from the bag as you can before sealing, then squeeze and squish until the flour is mostly incorporated.
  3. Add the vegetable oil and chocolate chips. Palpate the bag to combine until a smooth batter forms.
  4. Arrange paper linings in a muffin tin. Cut off the corner of the baggie and pipe the batter into the cups, about half full.
  5. Pop the muffin tin into the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or room temperate. Enjoy!
