Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: North American
Serves: 16 muffins
  • 1¾ unbleached flour (all purpose will also work)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (we used dark chocolate)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (rack set in the middle)
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, mash the ripe bananas until they turn into a paste. We used the end of a fork or your can use a potato masher.
  4. Cream together the sugar (both), butter and oil in a stand mixer bowl on medium high, for about 4 minutes.
  5. Add one egg at-a-time.
  6. Add the vanilla and mix for another two minutes.
  7. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer,
  8. Add the dry ingredients, mashed bananas, sour cream and chocolate chips into the stand mixer bowl.
  9. Mix everything with a rubber spatula until well combined. Don't beat or over-mix.
  10. Put the muffin liners in the muffin tin.
  11. Pour the batter into each liner, just over three quarters full. This is a thick batter, so use a large spoon to transfer the batter to the liners.
  12. Place the muffin tin in the oven for 20 minutes.
  13. Open the oven and test for doneness with a cake tester or toothpick. The tester should come out dry.
  14. Remove the muffin from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes.
  15. Remove the muffins from the tin and place them on a cooling rack for another 20 minutes.
  16. They're ready to eat! Enjoy!
