Eggless Banana Choco-Chip Muffins Recipe: Quick & Easy

Updated on July 7, 2012

Last week my kids suddenly decided not to have bananas, and as a result we had too many ripe bananas. I couldn't see them perish so I decided to give it a go and mix them with their favorite yummy snack - choco-chip muffins! After checking all the ingredients at home, and armed with some ugly-looking fruits, I was on my way to 'Project: Save-the-bananas-recipe!' And the best part is, this one is eggless!! So here it goes:

Ingredients:

(Makes 12 regular sizes muffins)

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3 medium ripe and mashed Bananas
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cups quick cooking Oats
  • 3/4 tspn Baking Soda
  • 3/4 tspn Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tspn Salt
  • 1/3 cup Oil
  • 3/4 cup miniature Chocolate Chips


Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Please note that ovens vary, so refer to the handbook.
  2. Lightly grease and line the muffin tin with paper liners.
  3. Puree the bananas using a hand blender, fork or a potato masher with a tablespoon of water in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the sugar and oil to the banana puree; beat it well with a whisk or electric beater.
  5. Now add the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips slowly.
  6. Fill each muffin cup 3/4ths full.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Check with a toothpick; you will know they're ready when the toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Cool for five minutes before removing from pan to the wire rack. TIP: Do not leave the muffins in the tin for more than five minutes because the paper liner will start giving out moisture and the muffins will become soggy.

PS: For those who'd prefer to use eggs instead, here's a beautiful recipe video below:

      Give it a try! I'm not very good at baking either, and believe me, this was my first hand-in-glove moment with the dreaded oven =)

      Looks really good. I think I would substitute nuts instead of chocolate.

      Made these yesterday! Delicious. Moist! I have an egg allergic toddler who also approved.

      To anyone with dry muffins, I wonder if perhaps not enough banana was added or if maybe they overcooked a bit?

      As a repeat over-baker offender, I pulled mine when there was just the tiniest bit of moisture on the toothpick.

      Have you made this without sugar? I'm wondering if I can substitute honey for the sugar. Would it still be 3/4 cup?
