I had more bananas I needed to use up and came across Pam’s recipe for Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins. It looked so yummy I had to make a batch! I also wanted to include some buttermilk in here so I added some, and I added a half more cup of flour as I wanted to make more than 12 muffins (I got ~20 with these measurements). These came out so delicious and moist. You can really taste the banana and peanut butter. The chocolate chips and the turbinado sugar sprinkling were an added bonus. Fantastic for breakfast or snack in the afternoon —yum!
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, softened
- 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup of dark muscovado sugar
- 1/2 cup of unsalted creamy peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup of buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup of milk chocolate chips
- turbinado sugar to sprinkling on top
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking cups in the muffin pan.
Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add peanut butter and mix well. Then add egg, mashed bananas, buttermilk, vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix until just moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into the lined baking cups. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar on top and bake for 15-18 minutes or until the tester/toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let the muffins cool for 5-7 minutes in the muffin pan before transferring them to the cooling rack.

Ahhh… delicious!! Bet you enjoyed them a lot!!!
We sure did! 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to comment today.
They look like they’d melt in my mouth. Yum!!! The details are awesome. I can even see little bits of crumbs on the chocolate chips!
Thanks hon! I think the specs you are seeing are the turbinado sugar. They are tasty. 🙂
Lovely muffins! Look totally delicious!
Thank you so much! 🙂
It looks yummieeeeeee Anne….great chef!!!
Thanks Massi! 🙂 Always lovely to hear from you.
Your baking always amazes me! Can I ask, does it really matter if the butter and soft brown sugar isn’t whisked until peaks form? I’ve tried making banana bread recently and could only get the butter and sugar creamed as I don’t have a mixer. I’m going to try again next week.
Hi Johnny, it doesn’t have to be peaked. You can cream sugar and butter until fluffy or until well combined. When I take my butter out of the fridge, I microwave it for 8 seconds so it softens. Then it’s easier to cream it until fluffy.
Thanks for the info. Mine was more like soft toffee. Just couldn’t get it fluffy!
Yummy these look so delicious!
It’s like the trinity of goodness: banana, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. They just go so well with each other. And these are nice sized too. The turbinado sugar was a great touch. Yum!
Thanks my love! 🙂 So glad you enjoyed it.
I wish I had seen this before I made milk chocolate and marshmallow s’more Ebelskivers for the weekend.
This looks so so scrumptious! I’ve been having a string of fails on banana baked desserts. I wonder if this might be the winner.
Thanks Jayne! This was easy to make. Make sure you don’t over mix or over bake. Good luck with your next banana dessert venture. 😉
Wow, Anne! These look just amazing and I think they’d make a great after school treat with a cold glass of milk just like your photos. 🙂
Thanks Allison! Always lovely to hear from you. 🙂
I’m always looking for new ways to use up ripe bananas – love this!!

You really are the muffin queen! They always look so good. Sounds daft but I love the little chocolate chips you use. They’re so cute 🙂 The ones I can buy here are literally chips of chocolate.

I’ve been drinking coffee this morning without having any baked goods. I really wish that I have your muffins! My family always ask me to add chocolate chips to anything and I liked that this recipe has banana in it… I have 7 brown bananas at the kitchen counter right now. YUM!
My bananas were black when I made these. 😀 I think it imparts more banana-y flavor when they’re super duper ripe. Have lovely weekend Nami!
Chocolate, PB and bananas… what more can one ask for?
