TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST PEANUT BUTTER BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS

Below are some tips and common questions about this recipe. If you have a question that I don’t answer, leave me a comment and I’ll do my best to answer it!

USE VERY RIPE BANANAS

My number one tip when making these Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chips muffins? Use very ripe bananas. Extra ripe bananas always make the absolute best baked goods. I usually buy a bunch and set them aside until they are brown and spotty.

If you don’t want to wait for your bananas to ripen, there are a few hacks to ripen your bananas fast you can try.

FILL LINERS ALMOST FULL

Spoon the batter evenly into the liners. You are going to fill the liners almost full – about 3/4 of the way. This leads to nicely rounded muffins.

CAN I USE INSTANT OATMEAL INSTEAD OF QUICK COOK?

No. Instant Oatmeal is cut way too fine, and is definitely not recommended for baking. Use either Quick or Old Fashioned Oats, instead.

WHY ARE MY MUFFINS DENSE?

There are several reasons why muffins can come out too dense. One is that there is too much liquid in the batter. The other is that there is too much leavening – such as baking soda or powder in the batter.

Another reason is that the batter was overmixed. This is an important tip to remember with almost all the things you bake. Over-mixing the ingredients can create dry, tough muffins. It can also result in your muffins baking unevenly, or coming out with tunnels and/or ugly, peaked tops.

WHAT’S THE SECRET TO MAKING MOIST MUFFINS? WHY DO MY MUFFINS COME OUT DRY AND CRUMBLY?

The main causes of dry, hard, and/or crumbly muffins are over-mixing the batter and overcooking the muffins. So be careful not to overmix the batter. And do not overcook.

Also, never let the muffins remain in the tins for too long after you remove them from the oven. The peanut butter banana chocolate chip muffins will actually continue to cook inside the hot tins. So remove them from the tins after three to four minutes and put them on a rack to finish cooling.

HOW TO STORE PEANUT BUTTER BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS

If you’re lucky enough to have any leftovers (remember what I said about gone in the blink of an eye, lol?), you can store these tasty muffins for 2-3 days. Simply keep them in an air-tight, sealed container at room temp.

You can also freeze them in a tightly sealed freezer bag. When ready to eat, simply eat straight from the freezer or microwave for 10 seconds.
