Use up your brown bananas with these delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins. Perfect for on-the-go breakfasts!
Muffins are one of our favorite breakfast options. Paired with plain yogurt, they’re filling and delicious! Muffins are also an easy baking recipe, making them perfect for the kids to practice their baking skills.
These Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins are a great way to use up overripe bananas. In fact, they taste better when overripe bananas are used instead of fresh bananas. This makes them perfect for my house. We seem to either go through all the bananas I buy within a day, or else they sit there and get mushy. There’s no in between at my house.
The prep for Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins takes about 10 minutes, and then they bake for 18 minutes, so it’s a pretty quick baked goods recipe.
I prefer to use my 24-cup muffin pan, so I can bake up all my muffins at one time, but you can definitely split the recipe between two regular muffin pans, and bake one at a time. I don’t recommend baking both pans at the same time, unless they fit in your oven side by side. If you put one over the top of the other, they don’t tend to bake well, due to their position in the oven.
