If there's one thing that people love on weekends, it's brunch. It seems that the popular brunch restaurants in every city have queues every weekend! Usually, I don't even try to go to crazy restaurants for brunch on the weekends, instead I do brunch at home. This chocolate chip banana muffin recipe is one of my favorites.

These muffins are soft, buttery, and filled with chocolate chips. They are a little decadent, to tell the truth. They remind me of Jim Gaffigan's joke: "A bun is just a bald patty, and we all know it." However, it could also be said that they are healthy, since they are made with simple ingredients such as bananas, oats and milk.

Soft, buttery, and filled with chocolate chips, these banana muffins are perfect for weekends or anytime.

I made these muffins recently when we had a TON of fruit left over in the house. My daughter Abby was in charge of grocery shopping while I was out of town, and she bought more fruit than we could eat. It happens to the best of us. We had too many overripe bananas, I made a TRIPLE batch of banana muffins.

I brought some muffins to the summer parade in our city that we went with some neighbors. He had so many cupcakes to give away, it was like the cupcake pusher. "Do you want a bagel? They are really good.Here try one, they are free! It won't hurt, try one! ”We were excited to go to the parade because Abby was going to be singing in one of the floats:

Of course, when the float passed by where we were sitting, it wasn't Abby's turn to sing, so I literally ran after the float for 7 or 8 blocks, trying to get photos and videos of my daughter. If I was that Mom, running down the street, holding my iPhone up in the air and looking ridiculous.

The process for making these chocolate chip banana muffins is simple. Cupcakes require oatmeal, which many people don't have, but you can make your own by grinding the oatmeal in a blender or food processor. Regardless of the amount of oatmeal you need, use that amount of oatmeal. So for this recipe, you would use 1/2 cup of oatmeal to make 1/2 cup of oatmeal.

Make your own oatmeal by processing oatmeal in a blender or food processor.

Then, mash 3 or 4 very ripe bananas (depending on size) to make 1 1/2 cups of mashed bananas. Mash the bananas with a fork or potato masher until smooth.

Overripe bananas in the pantry means it's time to make chocolate chip banana muffins!

Mix the bananas with white sugar, brown sugar, melted butter, and whole milk in a medium bowl. In a separate container, mix dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, oatmeal, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

Combine wet and dry ingredients, mixing as little as possible until all ingredients are incorporated. The muffins will become difficult if they are mixed too much. The texture of this dough is like a very thick cake dough. It is thicker than most cakes, but can still be poured.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. I fill mine about 1/4 inch below the edge, and that creates a nice domed bun. Bake the muffins for 16-20 minutes, or until the centers recover when touched. You can also try cupcakes ready by inserting a wooden skewer or toothpick in the center. If the dough clings to the skewer, bake a little more.

These cupcakes have been one of our family's favorite recipes for years. I have made them for my own family, for breakfast or for friends who were sick, had a baby or had surgery. They are a perfect weekend gift. Try them out and share your comments below!

Banana Muffins with Perfect Weekend Chocolate Chips

Banana Muffins with Perfect Weekend Chocolate Chips

The perfect weekend banana muffins are smooth, buttery, and loaded with chocolate chips!

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 4 medium bananas)
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup of whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup oatmeal (you can make your own oatmeal by grinding ½ cup oatmeal in a blender or food processor).
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or top with muffin tins. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a potato masher or fork until there are no pieces left. Mix with the sugars, the melted butter, the milk and the egg.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, mix together all-purpose flour, oatmeal, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the wet ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon or spatula. The dough will have the consistency of a very thick cake dough. If it is too thick, add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of milk, or if it is too thin, add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of flour. Mix just enough to incorporate the dry ingredients and don't mix too much. Fold the chocolate chips.
  4. Fill the filled muffin tins ¾. Bake 15-18 minutes, or until cooked through and begins to brown. Muffins are made if they jump again when you lightly press the top with your finger, or if a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Let the cupcakes cool for 10-15 minutes, then remove the cupcakes from the pan and allow them to cool on a wire rack to cool.
  6. Cupcakes taste better if eaten within 1-2 days, or keep them in the freezer longer.
