  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray muffin cups with cooking spray or line with paper liners.
  2. Beat sugar, butter, flax seed, vanilla, and eggs together in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
  3. Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Mix creamed sugar mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, into the flour mixture until fully incorporated and batter is stiff. Beat bananas into batter with an electric mixer on low. Fold chocolate chips and walnuts into batter; spoon into the prepared muffin cups, filling each cup 3/4 full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool in the tins for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I use half whole wheat flour/half white, part agave or honey to increase the 'good for you' factor, and semi-sweet mini-chips to ensure that each bite has chocolate in it.
  • Also good zapped for 10 seconds and promptly served with vanilla ice cream!
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Very moist. I did add a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg.

They were tasty but very dry for me. I will have to incorporate some apple sauce when I try this recipe again. I liked how this recipe included flax seed.

This is the best banana bread or muffin recipe I have found. I did make one adjustment by adding a tsp of cinnamon.

Definitely a most requested love the "good for you" tip!

Excellent as written. As a quick note, if you're short a banana, you can substitute with a 1/2 C applesauce-it still has a good banana flavor. We didn't notice a difference. :)

Love this recipe! I,too, replaced some of butter with flax seed. I'm not a talented cook and was wondering if I replaced some of the flour with protein powder how I would make the adjustment. I'...

I just did it and theyre so good and moist...

These were good, but a little dry even though I added an extra banana because of the other reviews saying as much.

Followed it exactly and they were definitely dry. The best bite is when you get a few chocolate chips, if not then it is very bland. I did add a tsp of cinnamon but still just not enough flavo...
