Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins


Muffins have to be large. So I took my ramekins and poured the batter into them instead of using standard muffin cups. 

I healthified these a little bit. I used spelt flour and instead of all-purpose flour. Of course, these would be awesome with all-purpose flour too. Then I only added a small amount of butter and sugar. But banana added the moisture and sweetness to these little cakes. 

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

50g butter, softened
90g white sugar
1 egg
1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2 medium)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
125g/1 cup spelt flour (or use all-purpose)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
90g dark chocolate chips or chunks

1) Preheat oven to 180°C.

2) Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, banana and vanilla extract.  

3) In another bowl, combine together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

4) Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture just until moistened. Fold in the chocolate.

5) Lightly grease 6 ramekins and fill them with batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the ramekins. You may serve these warm or cold. 

Recipe by collecting memories


  1. I really like the different shape the ramikens gave the muffins! Totally trying that next time. And they look so good, with their tender crumb, and chunks of chocolate - craving banana bread now:)

  2. I love reading you. In a million things, I'm sure we'll be very different. But sometimes, I read, and it's like: "That's me, not Gaby" :P

    I love XXL muffins. I read: "Fill muffins cups 2/3 or 3/4". And I think, noooo, just to the top!!!

    When I have leftover of dought, I also fill some ramekin, and that little cake or big muffin is the first I want to try!!
    You've gone to the next level, I see :P

    I like these muffins, and if you have not tried in muffin combination of banana, peanut butter and chocolate chips, give it a try!!

    1. Haha that's great, we have similarities! Though I don't understand what's written in you blog ;/ I like photos in your blog!
      I have tried banana/peanut butter/chocolate chip combination in no-bake oat bars, you know I love them! But in a muffin this combination should also be amazing. And yeeees, I'm always secretly happy when I have leftover dough, then I can bake it in a ramekin and eat straight from the oven! :D

  3. Thanks so much for the recipe!
