Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins3The Best Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 large very ripe bananas, finely mashed
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line 6 jumbo muffin pans with liners or spray with cooking spray.  You can also use a regular muffin pan.  The baking time will be shorter with the regular pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder and salt; whisk until combined.  Work in butter, using a pastry blender or two forks, until well incorporated and mealy.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together banana, sugar, egg and vanilla until well combined.  Make a well in the dry ingredients, and gently stir in the wet ingredients until just combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips until combined.  Scoop batter into prepared muffin pans.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and well risen.  If you're making regular muffins they will probably bake in 25-20 minutes.

  1. ooooh these muffins look so tender and taaasty!!!

  2. Hmmm, interesting and happy accident! Maybe it's the cornstarch?

  3. I think Banana Chip is my favorite kind of muffin. SPP isn't fond of bananas, but will usually eat banana bread, and will be more even likely to eat muffins with chocolate chips in them. These must have an interesting texture since you made them with a scone method. I am definitely interested.

  4. soft on the inside, but with a crusty exterior--that's the perfect muffin! the presence of chocolate doesn't hurt either. :)

  5. This recipe is a keeper. Muffins turn out delicious. Thank you.
