Sometimes I even bake these muffins the night before!

That gives me a super-lazy breakfast option!

Genius, right?


Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredient: #1: Butter

Some people skimp and use oil, but when possible, I grab butter every time.

And melt that golden yellow goodness for a super rich batter!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredient: #2: Chocolate Milk

My kids LOVE me adding this ingredient and you’ll love it too!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredient: #3: Hot Chocolate Packets

Yes, really. :) You can use any brand without the tiny marshmallows.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredient: #4: Chocolate Chips

I prefer mini ones for this recipe, but you can use regular size if you want! Dark or milk chocolate is fine!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredient: #5: Mashed Bananas

Keep it simple and use a fork to mash the bananas. Just your grandma did!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredient: #6: Vanilla

When possible, use pure vanilla extract and not imitation.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredient: #7: All purpose Flour

Fresh flour is best. Not the flour that’s been sitting in your kitchen canisters for months.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Ingredient: #: Walnuts

You can leave these out if someone has an allergy to nuts!

How to Freeze Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Step 1: Allow Muffins to Cool Completely

If you freeze hot muffins, your muffins will end up less soft and fluffy!

If you want to freeze the muffin batter, pour the batter into a muffin tin lined with cupcake liners.

Step 2: Freeze Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins in a Single Layer

Once the banana triple chocolate muffins have cooled, place them in single layer on a baking sheet. Flash freeze muffins for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Place Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins in a Freezer Bag

Place flash frozen muffins in airtight freezer bags.

Squeeze out any air.

Place your freezer bag into another freezer bag and repeat for all muffins.

Freeze for up to three months.

How to Thaw and Eat Frozen Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

When you’re ready to eat the banana chocolate chip muffins you froze earlier, simply thaw before serving for microwave for a few seconds before serving.
