recipe: healthy chocolate chip banana buttermilk muffins

Dear lovely readers,

long time no peep. But I am here now and to make up for the lack of enchanting notions that I sent your way this past months, I’m starting off this little comeback with a delicious (and healthy!) recipe that’ll be the perfect sweet addition to your cup of coffee: chocolate chip banana buttermilk muffins. They are fluffy, they are juicy, they are super-easy to bake. Without further ado, here comes the recipe:


Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Buttermilk Muffins

makes about 16 muffins (if you fill the muffin cups completely like I did)

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey (or more, or less)
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (or more, or less)
  • about 1/4 cup freshly pressed lemon juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  2. In a bowl, mix all wet ingredients.
  3. In another bowl, mix all dry ingredients, except for the chocolate chips.
  4. Add wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together. It really doesn’t need too much stirring. Make sure there are no flour pockets.
  5. Add in as much chocolate chips as you like.
  6. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full of batter. I didn’t, so they came out huge 🙂
  7. ENJOY with a freshly brewed cup of coffee.

Let me know how you like them!

I’ll be back with more enchanting notions these upcoming days. Looking forward to sharing with you.
