freeze ripening bananas for the perfect moist banana recipes

**Banana Tip!** Store ripening bananas in the freezer until ready to use for banana muffins or banana bread. Simply place whole banana, peel and all in the freezer. When ready to use, place in a bowl and let defrost. These make the best banana muffin and banana bread recipes ever!

Preheat Oven to 350°F

Banana Mixture

Remove bananas from the freezer 30-60 minutes before starting recipe for the easiest results. If still frozen be sure to peel and mash before adding in the following step. 

combine oil sugar and eggs

In a large bowl mix together oil, sugar and eggs. Then cut open the top of the bananas and squeeze out the banana pulp into the mixing bowl. Because the bananas have been frozen and defrosted they do not usually need any mashing, but if necessary go ahead and mash in a separate bowl before adding to the oil, sugar, egg mixture.

Blend together well and then add the chocolate chips and mix batter some more.

Sometimes I leave the chocolate chips out so we can have a quick breakfast snack on the go without the added sugar. Honestly, I’m a huge banana bread, banana muffin fan so I love these no matter what!

Combine Dry Ingredients with Banana Mixture

Now it is time to prepare the dry portion of this recipe. In a medium-size bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Whisk with a fork until well combined! 

Combine your wet & dry ingredients

Slowly add dry ingredients to your wet ingredients while mixing on low or stirring by hand. Once all dry is folded in with the wet it is time to get them in the muffin pans.

I like to use muffin papers in size large but sometimes I run out. So if you don’t have any on hand, no worries; simply grease your muffin trays and you are good to go.

Using a ladle, fill approximately 3/4 of the muffin cup. 

Bake the Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

bake chocolate chip banana muffins for 20 minutes

Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Use a toothpick to check the muffins around the 15-minute mark for your first batch until you establish appropriate baking time in your oven with this recipe. Before removing from oven the toothpick should come out clean with no batter on it. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Serve as is or with a bit of butter!

Every time I bake these muffins I have the intention of freezing some however they are such a hit they don’t seem to make it to the freezer anymore. To freeze them simply put in a well-sealed freezer-friendly container. They are still fresh and moist once thawed. Don’t forget these are perfect for school lunches, a quick breakfast addition on the run or a great snack after school!

My latest Kitchen purchases for baking

Recently, we purchased these new muffin tins solely for the purpose of my ability to take better photos for my blog hahaha! It’s true! I have been using the same old muffin tins for years and years and when making Yorkshire Pudding they can really change the color of your pans. 

Non- stick muffin tins from Amazon we recently purchased. These work perfectly for chocolate chip banana muffins!

I love non-stick pans because they are easy to clean, therefore, these were exactly what I was looking for and bonus! it’s a set of two, which is perfect for my Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Recipe!

My latest edition is my Kitchen aid hand mixer because I burnt out my old mixer making Chocolate chip cookies oops. This mixer is the perfect addition to my kitchen decor and it has what it takes to whip up some baking with me!

Now the Kitchen Aid hand mixer is so powerful I’m looking at purchasing a deep mixing bowl. Something that has high sides which will help keep any batter from flying about the room (oh my goodness I baked cookies the other day with the new mixer and totally underestimated it oops!) With lids would be amazing too for quick storage. Let me know what you use in the comments below!

A beautiful KitchenAid Mixer that is on y drool list of things I really love for the kitchen! I could be baking muffins left, right and centre with this bad boy!

In the future, I would love to add one of these KitchenAid mixers to my cooking arsenal but for right now it is on my drool list, sigh.
