The classic chocolate peanut butter combo we all love wrapped into a fluffy (healthy!) muffin that only requires one bowl and one banana to make!
Who doesn’t love waking up to a good muffin to eat with their coffee?? Next time you have that one ripe banana on your counter, instead of making another loaf of banana bread try this instead! These chocolate peanut butter banana muffins are super fluffy and moist (sorry), they are made with ONE bowl, and you only need ONE banana!
When you combine easy + minimal clean up + delicious chocolatey treats you know I am there and if you are visiting this post I think you are on the same page as me! So let’s get to it.
Let’s Make Some Small Batch Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins!
Alrighty. The number one secret to muffins – don’t over-mix them. That is how you keep them light and fluffy. If you over-mix your batter they’ll become dense. Neat trick huh?
Second secret for these muffins in particular – your banana. Smash the heck out of it. Smash it up for a minute (I use a fork), and just when you think you have smashed it enough, smash it some more. You don’t want to leave lumps in this one, you want it to be super liquidy!
Next tip – Don’t over-bake. Every oven is a littttttle different but I baked these for exactly 15 minutes and they were perfect. Maybe check after 12 just to be sure – you can know they are done when they have risen, and they are “bouncy”/firm to the touch (and don’t feel like they are gooey inside).
Other than that it is pretty straightforward. I used a chocolate bar that I broke up, but you can use chocolate chips if you prefer. Just be sure to get all the good chocolate in there!
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- a muffin pan
- muffin liners
- a large bowl
- a fork (to mash banana and mix everything)
