Misang’s Kitchen: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin

After my Blueberry Muffin experience, it’s now time to make a more complicated muffin recipe.

Banana is one of the most nutritious food around. It’s rich in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C,  Fiber, and Potassium (read more about bananas here). This makes it a healthy muffin, and the added chocolate makes it really yummy.


The original recipe is from Panlasang Pinoy.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 3 pieces medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used my home-made chocolate chips)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 pieces eggs (whites only)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt

Cooking Procedure:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Mix well. Set aside.
  3. Beat-in egg whites in a separate bowl. Gradually add the bananas, vegetable oil, sugar, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Continue beating until all the ingredients are well distributed.
  4. Gradually fold-in the flour mixture, and then the chocolate chips. Mix well.
  5. Arrange muffin cups on a muffin tray. Scoop the mixture and arrange in each muffin cup. Make sure that you only fill about less than 3/4 of the cup’s volume.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 23 to 27 minutes, or until it passes the toothpick test.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool by placing on a wire rack. Serve and enjoy.

This recipe yields 8 regular-sized muffins.
