What We Served: Healthy and Simple Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

This weekend I will be going to a huge national conference for PRSSA in Atlanta, so naturally I was thinking of a motivator for our caravan of students leaving early this Friday morning. I decided to revisit a recipe we had at one of our Service House breakfasts: a huge crowd pleaser! So, last night I made the best banana and chocolate chip muffins of your life. The best part is there are no eggs, just a wee-bit of sugar, and you use whole wheat flour! And there’s fruit… So, healthy right? 😉

imageI also used little pieces of parchment paper in place of muffin tins, just to make sure that no little crumbs are lost! Don’t you hate it when that happens?

Anyway, here is the recipe. Let me know if you decide to make these!

Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins


4 tbsp. Butter, softened

1/4 c. Sugar

1/2 tsp. Vanilla

1 1/2 c. Whole Wheat Flour (or all-purpose if you wish!)

1/2 tsp. Salt

1 tsp. Baking Soda

3 Ripe Bananas, mashed

1/2 c. Chocolate Chips (or whatever add in you choose! Walnuts, anyone?)

Tubinado Sugar for Topping (optional)


  1. imageMix together butter, sugar, vanilla.
  2. Add in flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix well.
  3. Mix in bananas and chocolate chips, or add-in of your choice.
  4. Scoop into muffin tin or parchment paper. (Can add sugar on top, if you so choose!)
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean, at 350 degrees.
  6. Let cool. Enjoy! Sooooo simple!
