“Adapted from the Penzey's spices catalog. These are very moist and speckled with tiny bits of chocolate. I fill my muffin tins very full,m so I actually only get 12 large muffins (which require more like 20-25 minutes cooking time), but if you prefer smaller muffins, you will get 16-18 by filling the tins 3/4s full.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease 2 (12 hole) regular size muffin pans and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together until combined well and fluffy.
  4. Add one egg, beat well; add second egg, beat well.
  5. Add vanilla and stir to combine.
  6. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  7. Combine wet mixture and dry mixture using a spoon and stir just until all the ingredients are moistened- don't overmix and don't use an electric mixer or it will toughen the muffins (you can press out any big lumps with your spoon).
  8. Gently fold in the bananas and the mini chocolate chips.
  9. Spoon into muffin tins so they are 3/4 full- you will probably only have enough batter for about 18.
  10. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick tests clean.
  11. Let cool 5-10 minutes in the pans, then gently slide a butter knife around the edges to help loosen any stubborn bits.
  12. Remove from tins and let cool or serve warm with butter.
