These Cinnamon Sugar Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins with Self Rising Flour are the best banana muffins ever! These easy chocolate chip banana muffins take only 12-15 minutes to bake and are great for breakfast or dessert!




  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 large bananas (mashed)
  • 3/4 sugar or (1/2 cup sugar + 1/4 cup applesauce)*
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or dark)

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter in a small microwavable bowl. Set aside to cool.
  3. Combine self rising flour and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
  4. In a separate large mixing bowl combine mashed bananas, applesauce, sugar, egg, vanilla, and melted butter and stir until combined.
  5. Next, add 1/2 of the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients, stir, and then add the other 1/2 until just combined. DO NOT OVER MIX.
  6. Gently fold in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
  7. Scoop out batter evenly into a well-sprayed muffin pan using a medium cookie scoop. Fill each muffin tin about 2/3 full.
  8. Next mix together sugar and cinnamon in a bowl for the muffin topping.
  9. Using a spoon lightly sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over each muffin. With a toothpick, swirl throughout the top of the muffin and sprinkle with more mixture, as desired. Top with additional chocolate chips.
  10. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  11. Let your muffins cool for 5 minutes in the pan, before transferring to a cooling rack. Enjoy your delicious banana muffins!


  • The original recipe used 3/4 cup sugar, but I’ve since adjusted the recipe with a lighter option to use 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup applesauce. It still tastes just as delicious and is better for you!
  • Store leftover muffins in an airtight container for up to 5 days. You can also freeze them in a ziplock bag for up to 3 months.
