  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1.5 cups bananas, very ripe and mashed
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1.25 cups chocolate chips - DIVIDED


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized mixing bowl and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add the bananas, sour cream, milk, eggs, and vanilla to the sugar and butter mixture. Mix together until completely combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient bowl and stir JUST until they are well combined but do not over-mix the batter.
  • Stir in in one (1) cup of the chocolate chips into the batter.
  • Distribute the muffin batter into paper lined or non-stick sprayed muffin tins.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips on the tops of the muffins.
  • Bake for 18-22 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Tips for baking the perfect muffins.

  • Don’t overwork the batter, unless the recipe like this one has a step for creaming ingredients together, stir them by hand. Overworked muffins do not rise as well and can be tough.
  • Do not full the muffin tin all the way to the top with batter. Three-fourth full is usually perfect.
  • A 4-ounce ice cream scoop or a 1/4 measuring cup is the perfect amount for a standard size muffin tin.
