Roasted Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Baking with bananas is one of my favorite ways to use the versatile fruit. In this easy muffin recipe, the bananas add moistness and depth of flavor to the sweet treats, and roasting them adds just a little something extra. Whether you whip these up for brunch or dessert, they'll be the perfect chocolaty, fruity bite!

Ingredients

  • 3 large bananas, unpeeled
  • 1 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 Cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 Cup whole milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place the unpeeled bananas on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes (the peels will turn dark and there may be some liquid that leaks out). Remove the bananas from the oven and let cool. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. 

Once cool, peel the roasted bananas and mash. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together 1 cup mashed bananas, egg, butter, milk, and vanilla and stir until combined. Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined (do not overmix). Stir in the chocolate chips.

Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper or foil liners. Divide the batter into the muffin cups, filling up approximately ¾ full. Bake in the oven until a cake tester comes out clean (with possible melted chocolate), about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, transfer the muffins to a wire rack, and let cool. 

Enjoy!

Banana Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
