Pinterest Fun Fridays on Foster: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

Being that I had left over bananas and buttermilk from last week’s recipe, I decided to bake up another delicious banana dessert.

This Week: Banana Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Muffins (courtesy of Taste of Home)


  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Making the Muffins…

1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add bananas and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternating with the buttermilk.

2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin pans two-thirds full. For the topping, combine the flour, brown sugar and oats. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle a rounded teaspoonful over each muffin. (I added chocolate chips instead of doing the crumble)

3. Bake at 400° Fahrenheit for 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for five minutes before removing from pans to placing on wire racks.

Final Product

Time Spent in Kitchen: 30 minutes

Rating: 7 – It would be higher if they looked prettier!

The muffins tasted much better than they looked. The odd appearance might be because I decided to add chocolate chops into the mix rather than make a crumble to put on top. Check out next week’s article to see what Easter-inspired creation I whip up!

Peace, Love & Pinterest,
