Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

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. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. I am so glad you liked them! Adding the buttermilk is a great idea. They look delicious. Thanks for the shout out & link back to my site.

  7. 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!

  8. Yum, these muffins look delicious! I always have bananas on hand that I could use up and love that it’s paired up with peanut butter and chocolate! Love your blog and recipes and thanks so much for stopping by my site:)
