  • 3 ripe bananas mashed (10 oz total)
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ cup sugar 150 grams
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 200 grams
  • 2/3 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips regular size okay, too


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a mini muffin pan with 24 indentations.
  • Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in the egg, sugar, vanilla and coconut oil.
  • Whisk in the baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt, making sure they are evenly dispersed, then add the flour and stir with a scraper until smooth.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips (if using).
  • Fill the muffin cups almost to the top. These rise high and shouldn't spread outward, but try not to overfill to be safe.
  • Bake at 400 F for about 12 minutes or until they appear set and nicely browned. Let cool in the pan for a few minutes, then carefully pry them out with the tip of a knife.
  • Grease the muffin tin again and bake any remaining batter. You should get about 36 total.
