With fresh banana and chocolate chips in every bite, these muffins are delicious anytime from breakfast to midnight snack – but they’re at their best when hot from the oven.
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted Swans Down® Cake Flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 bananas, very ripe, mashed
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 ounces grapeseed oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Line a standard 12-count muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl; set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together bananas, sugar, oil, egg, vanilla and milk until combined. Add to the flour mixture and whisk until completely incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Fill the muffin liners with batter 2/3 full and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the muffins spring back when touched.

    There used to be a recipe for a Chocolate Chip Banana cake but I can’t find it. It was similar to this but it also included a chocolate cream cheese icing. Is that recipe available? It’s a cult classic among my crew and I’ve lost it. Thank you

    What is grape seed oil .

    • Swans Down says:

      Hi Jeanette, Great question! “Grape seed oil (also called grapeseed oil or grape oil) is a vegetable oil derived from the seeds of grapes. A by-product of the winemaking industry, it is typically used for edible applications. When used it cooking, it has a moderately high smoke point of approximately 216 °C (421 °F). Due to its clean, light taste, and high polyunsaturated fat content, it may be used as an ingredient in salad dressings and mayonnaise and as a base for oil infusions of garlic, rosemary, or other herbs or spices. It is widely used in baked goods, pancakes, and waffles. It is sprayed on raisins to help them retain their flavor.” You can find it at most retailers, Walmart, Amazon, etc. If it is not readily available you can substitute it with regular vegetable oil. Happy baking.
