You can see all our of lovely muffins by following our Pinterest boardUpdated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday, can be found on our home page. Our earliness leader is Stacy of Food Lust People Love.

This recipe made 15 muffins for me - so keep that in mind if you have muffin tins on the smaller side like some of mine seem to be. These muffins were really, really delicious. Super tender, a lovely light crunchy exterior from the butter, just the right amount of chocolate chips, and a hint of the espresso flavor. I might add more next time. All in all a great way to start, or end, the day!

Take a look at all the yummy muffin-goodness we're sharing today!
Banana Espresso Chocolate Chip Muffins adapted from Handle The Heat

1 1/2 cups mashed, very ripe bananas (about 4 medium bananas)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup whole milk
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray (if you're using smaller muffin tins, you may need to use 2 pans for excess batter).
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the the bananas, sugars, butter, milk, and egg together until well blended.
  3. Add the dry ingredients into the wet, and stir just until combined, then add the chocolate chips in by hand.
  4. Fill each prepared cup about three-quarters full. Bake in the center of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  5. Move the muffin pan to a cooling rack, and let cool for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove the muffins from the pan and let them finish cooling on the cooling rack.
  6. Muffins can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.


  1. I'm always a fan of adding coffee to just about any recipe. Lovely muffins, Rebekah!

  2. Rebekah, these sound terrific! I have a jar of espresso powder that liked being in my Tiramisu muffins, and I bet it will like these muffins, too. Thanks!

  3. I love the addition of coffee flavor to these muffins Rebekah

  4. I love the idea of adding espresso, especially where chocolate is involved. These do sound delicious!

  5. I often make a smoothie with these very flavours. So good! I know those muffins are tasty!
