How to make banana chocolate chip muffins from scratch?

  1. Mash bananas

    First, preheat the oven to 437°F / 220°C. If not using a non-stick muffin tin, lightly grease it with oil or use muffin liners. I used silicone muffin liners.
    Next, peel and mash your sweet ripe bananas with a fork or potato masher in a medium-sized mixing bowl until you get a smooth consistency. If your bananas aren’t ripe enough to be mashed by fork blend them in a blender or food processor. We’ll need approximately 1 cup of mashed bananas.

  2. Mix dry ingredients

    In a big bowl, whisk together spelt flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cacao powder.

  4. Make the batter

    After that, pour out wet ingredients into the bowl with dry ingredients and gently mix until well incorporated. Be careful not to overmix it because overmixing prevents the muffins to be soft and tender. Once the batter is made, gently fold in vegan chocolate chips.

  5. Bake your chocolate muffins

    Fill each muffin cup with the mixture. I used a 12 cup muffin tin and filled each muffin hole about 3/4 full. Sprinkle more chocolate chips on top if you like.
    Bake for 20-23 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake.

  6. Serve and enjoy

    Remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool for at least 10 minutes before removing them from the muffin tin. Enjoy these easy-to-make homemade muffins immediately with a generous spread of creamy peanut butter, healthy homemade Nutella, or some roasted hazelnuts and walnuts.
    Store any leftovers at room temperature for up to 3-4 days. Keep them in the refrigerator for up to a week. Freeze in freezer-friendly bags or aluminum foil for up to 2 months. Let them defrost before serving.

Can you freeze banana chocolate chip muffins?

Sure, these muffins are freezer-friendly. I doubt you’ll have any leftovers but in case you have some, make sure they are completely cooled and simply feeze them in freezer-friendly bags or aluminum foil for up to 2 months. Let them thaw before serving. Simply take them out of the freezer the night before eating. Alternatively, you can reheat in a microwave or oven.

How do I ripen bananas fast?

Don’t worry if you don’t have ripe bananas for your baking projects. The quickest way to ripen them is to bake them in the oven. Simply put unpeeled bananas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil and bake for 13-18 minutes at 300°F / 150°C (baking time will depend on the current ripeness of your bananas). They should get dark spots or become brown when ready. Otherwise, you can place them in a warm place in a paper bag together with a high-ethylene fruit-like ripe apple or peach. Close the paper bag loosely. Bananas shouldn’t be overly green when using this method. They should be ready in 24-48 hours.
