These Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins couldn’t be any simpler to make. You can also use the base recipe to make a standard chocolate chip-free banana muffin…or even banana bread in loaf form!

We had a warm streak here in Arizona (at least by winter standards) and I now have spring fever. I’ve been baking lots of goodies for you 🙂

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I used these bright yellow cupcake wrappers. They are so cheery!

I use this brand of vegan chocolate chips. Consistent results every single time.  They also make dark chocolate morsels and chocolate chunks (which re amazing)!

I like to top with a few extra chips (okay, maybe more than a few) for aesthetic purposes.

The chips do take some time to set up after baking, so allow to cool completely. Unless, of course, you are like me and enjoy them warm and gooey.

These muffins just make me happy.
