True story: whenever I’ve had a rough day or week, the one sure fire cure to get me out of a slump is to grab my baker’s mitts and whip up a delicious treat in the kitchen. I don’t know what it is, but baking for me has always been somewhat of a stress reliever, and it sure doesn’t hurt to make something that literally fills the whole house with the most delicious aroma!

So of course when I let the bananas go bad again for the 900th time yesterday (don’t judge), I figured why not take advantage and make some delicious and easy banana muffins? But not just any plain ol’ banana muffins.

Nope, these banana muffins have all the right flavors in all the right places. Bananas? Check. Cinnamon Sugar deliciousness? Check. Chocolate Chips because everything in life is better with chocolate in it? Double-Check.

Introducing (drum roll please)….Cinnamon Sugar Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins. The most epic banana chocolate chip muffins you’ll ever eat for breakfast.

After indulging in one of these banana muffins yesterday afternoon, I realize these could easily be considered a dessert, but hey life’s short and why not start your day off right?

We all deserve a treat every now and then and plus these could totally pass for healthy muffins since they have bananas in them. 😉

Okay, I’m kidding, but seriously they’re so good you won’t be able to pass these up. Oh and in case you’re wondering, I made these from start to finish in less than 30 minutes. I call that winning in my book.

    Hi
    If I use regular flour, how would I revise the recipe? Thanks!

    Posted 2.9.20 Reply
    • Hi Raina – you’ll just have to add salt and baking powder to it to ensure it rises properly. Here’s the ratio to use: Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to each cup of flour. Hope that helps!

    I was excited to make these and took out of oven but they didn’t rise… the recipe I now realize has no baking powder or baking soda so they were a flop… would love to make again with that part added.

    • Oh no, so sorry to hear that Brenda! I always use self-rising flour and I apologize for not specifying in the ingredient list- I just updated it for clarity. Hope your next try is a success and you enjoy them! They really are yummy 🙂
