Busted these out for the 1st day of school and they were WELL received. It also had to do with the fact that I had 3 bananas that were well beyond viable. I didn’t put any nuts in as I know my kids won’t eat it if I do, but you could throw in 2 tbsp walnuts at the end before you bake for some extra crunchiness.

Hope you enjoy!

Dairy Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 12 muffins


  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup almond milk (or buttermilk/regular milk if you don't care about the dairy-free thing)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (vegan chocolate chips if you REALLY want to go non-dairy)


  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • Spray a 12-muffin tin pan with cooking spray (I didn't use liners).
  • Grab a large bowl and mash your bananas with a fork.
  • Add in the egg, almond milk, sugar and brown sugar and mix it all in.
  • In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Add flour mixture to your banana/egg/sugar mixture and get it all incorporated.
  • Fold in chocolate chips (and nuts if you're using).
  • Scoop out equal parts into your muffin tin. I used a large ice cream scooper and it worked out perfectly to fill the 12 spaces.
  • Bake for 30 minutes (depending on oven). I actually did 28 minutes in my convection oven and they were perfect. Insert a toothpick to make sure center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven to cool. Once able, transfer to wire rack to finish cooling or just serve with some butter for extra awesomeness!
