How to make the best bakery style banana chocolate chip muffins

Step 1: Preheat

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 

Step 2: Grease the muffin pan

Spray or line 1 jumbo muffin pan and place it close to your baking workspace.

Step 3: Mix the ingredients in a bowl

In a large mixing bowl mix together the sugar, vegetable oil, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla. Add the mashed banana and mix just until combined. Use a whisk to mix it all up. I personally like chunks of bananas in my muffins, but if you don’t, mix until smooth.

Step 4: Mix the dry ingredients

In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. 

Step 5: Combine the wet and dry ingredients

Add the dry ingredients and chocolate chips to the wet ingredients and stir only until mixed.

Step 6: Add the batter to the muffin tin

Using a cookie scoop or large spoon (a ¼ measuring cup works really well!)  pour the muffin batter into each muffin cup, filling until full.

Step 7: Bake

Bake at 400F for 15 to 18 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

Step 8: Cool

Remove from the oven and let the muffins cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before you take them out and place them on a separate cooling rack. Just a note of caution – you won’t be able to resist the heavenly aroma and will likely eat one before they cool!
