Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Mini Muffins | Secret Recipe Club

For this month’s reveal, I had the privilege of getting to pick a recipe to make from Melissa at BKLYN Locavore. I had actually never been introduced to Melissa’s blog before now but over the last month it has become a favorite! Melissa and her husband are challenging themselves to eat only foods grown locally to their area & to enjoy the specific foods for each of the seasons.  As not only a food blogger, but a mom, her challenge was inspiring to me! Did you know that Dallas has one of the best & largest local Farmer’s Markets and I have never once been to check it out! Melissa has convinced me that needs to change! 🙂

Mom's Test Kitchen: Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Mini Muffins

Melissa has a great list of recipes she’s created on her blog – everything from drinks to preserving food! As I was looking through her recipes trying to decide on just one to make, I found a breakfast recipe that won me over.  Again, as a mom, I’m always on the hunt for recipe’s my daughter will like but that will be nutritious & maybe even sneak in some extra fruits or vegetables. Melissa’s Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Muffins was just that recipe!

And my daughter loved them! She ate probably somewhere between a half to a whole dozen of the muffins the day we baked them!

Mini Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Muffins


  • 1 & 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Generous pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 ripe bananas mashed or cut into small slices
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips - I used semi-sweet


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners.
  • In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, until well mixed. Add the applesauce, bananas and peanut butter individually, mixing well after each addition.
  • Add the flour mixture in slowly, making sure the flour is well blended before adding more. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  • Fill the muffin tins about 3/4 of the way full - I used my tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop the dough & fill the tins somewhat evenly.
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out relatively clean (there will be some melted chocolate).
  • Let cool for a minute or two in the pan & then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Oh my goodness…peanut butter, chocolate AND bananas? You won me over. Love your pictures. I just pinned these to make sometime. Also visiting from group D

  2. Yum! It’s hard to beat the banana/chocolate/peanut butter combination! I think I would be in the same boat as your daughter with not being able to stop eating them!
