Wholewheat Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins

Muffins have always been welcomed at our home. May it be for a tea time snack or as breakfast, we are happy to have it. The Blueberrry Muffins has always been loved by us. When I see bananas going overripe I try to convert it to something that would be appealing to my crowd. So I try make Adai, Banana bread, Pancakes, Banana Muffins etc. So the over ripe bananas vanish in no time :).

Well, not always do I add chocolate chips in them. But there are those days when you just can't stop craving to have something chocolatey and putting these chocolate chips in the muffins restricts the amount of chocolate intake :).

Have it for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee to start a wonderful day or have it as a tea time snack to sign off a tiring day at work. They are worth to indulge in.


  1. 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
  2. 1 tsp of baking soda
  3. 1/2 tsp of salt
  4. 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  5. 3 over ripe bananas
  6. 1 cup of sugar
  7. 1 egg at room temperature
  8. 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
  9. 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
  • In a bowl, add the dry ingredients (1-3). Whisk it so that all the ingredients gets evenly distributed.
  • In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas. Add the sugar and mix it well. Beat the egg and add to the bowl of mashed bananas. Add the vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Whisk it well, so that all the ingredients get evenly distributed and combine together.
  • Now drop in the dry ingredients little by little , as you continue to stir it into the wet ingredients. Add the chocolate chips and mix it gently untill they get distributed through out the muffin batter.
  • Grease a muffin pan or line it with paper muffin cup. Scoop out the batter and drop it into the muffin pan untill its half filled. I sprinkled them with some rolled oats to look beautiful.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 F. Bake the muffins in the oven for 20 minutes or untill a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Remove it from the oven and let it cool for about 5 minutes before you remove them from the muffin pan. Serve it with some hot coffee for your breakfast or tea.

  1. You could substitute whole wheat flour with all purpose flour, if you wish to. I just went for a healthier option by adding whole wheat flour and they taste good.
  2. As I said earlier, not always do I add chocolate chips in them. So if you are not a chocolate fan or don't have chocolate chips handy, just avoid it in the recipe.
