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

Print Pin
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
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!
