Banana and choc chip miffins

I posted this recipe way back in 2010 on a recipe blog a few of us cooking-loving friends decided to put together.  The blog, sadly has been neglected by us all for some time now, but I still head back to it for a few favourite recipes every so often.  This is one of those recipes.  No matter how many times I have made this recipe, I still, for the life of me can never ever quite remember the whole thing 🙂  So I’m bringing it back and sharing it with you all…

Why miffins?  Well, instead of admitting to a typo (me?!  Never!!!), mini muffins are now known as miffins in our house!  As a general rule, I am not a fan of baked banana goods.  Give me a real, fresh banana any day.  But these muffins are chocolatey and banana-ery without having that typical banana bread taste.  It may be the sour cream?  I don’t know, but I’m not complaining!  It’s a great way to use up those sad looking bananas that sit in our fruit bowl all on their own and just know they aren’t going to be eaten.
  • 1 3/4 cups plain flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 small bananas mashed
  • 3/4 cup chopped milk chocolate or milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C.
  2. Place flour, baking powder & sugar in a bowl.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together sour cream, eggs & oil until combined.
  4. Fold into the flour mixture with the banana & chocolate, stirring until just combined.
  5. Spoon mixture into well greased muffin tray, bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Allow to stand in the tray for 5 mins.
  7. Cool on a wire rack.

Makes 12 muffins or 24 miffins

My Notes
  • Using 2 large bananas as opposed to the 2 small bananas as listed in the ingredients doesn’t make a difference to this recipe.
  • I always add more choc chips of any colour, it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t!
  • If I have only a bit of sour cream left in the container, I add that in too.  Doesn’t seem to make any difference to the end result.
  • For me, these muffins stick to paper muffin pans so I generally use the silicon ones if I need them in patty papers for these.
