Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Chocolate Chips Banan Muffins on Decorative Plate

Great for a quick on-the-go breakfast or packed in a lunch. A sweet treat for an afternoon snack. 

Makes 12 muffins


  • ⅓ Cup More Than Olives Arbosana “Organic” Olive Oil
  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ⅓ Cup Almond Milk or Milk
  • 1 ¾ Cup All-Purpose Flour, sifted
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ Cup Chocolate Chips + some to top the muffins
  • 1 Cup Ripe Banana, mashed
  • Optional- ½ Cup Walnuts or Pecans, chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place paper muffin liners into a muffin pan.

In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.  Whisk to combine the dry ingredients. 

In the bowl of a standing mixer, blend the More Than Olives Arbosana “Organic” Olive Oil with the sugar.  Add to the mixture the eggs, vanilla extract, and milk. Blend again until well incorporated. 

Add the flour into the wet ingredients in 2-3 batches while the mixer is on low.  Add in the mashed banana and continue to blend in just until all is mixed. Don’t over blend the batter. Remove the bowl and fold the chocolate chips into the batter. (use fewer chocolate chips if you want more banana flavor).  If you want nuts in the muffins, fold them in also. 

Fill each muffin liner about 2/3 full and add a few chocolate chips to the top of each muffin. 

Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let them cool for 8-10 minutes in the pan and then move them to a rack to cool completely.

Store leftover muffins in a container with a lid for a few days or place them in a plastic bag and put in the freezer to enjoy later.

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
Tonia Nichols

“Delicious and aromatic California olive oils and highly flavorful balsamic vinegar varieties! The employees are always friendly and helpful. I really appreciate that I can refill bottles too.”
