browned butter banana muffins + chocolate chips

yields: 22 muffins prep time: 20 minutes cook time: 24 minutes


¾ cup butter, divided

3 large or 4 small bananas, very ripe

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 cups sugar

1 ¾ cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. kosher salt

½-1 cup milk chocolate chips


¼ cup browned butter, from reserve

½ cup flour

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

pinch of salt


  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. If you slice it up first, it will melt more evenly.

  • Once melted, the butter will foam up a bit. Continue whisking and cooking until you see lightly browned specks begin to form at the bottom of the pan.

  • When the butter is browned, it should have a nutty aroma. Let cool for at least 10 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350° and prepare your muffins pans.

  • In the base of your stand mixer, add ½ cup of the browned butter, bananas, egg, sugar, and vanilla. Using the paddle attachment, beat until well combined.

  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Continue beating until fully incorporated.

  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and gently fold in the chocolate chips.

  • Fill the muffin tins until they are about ¾ full.

  • In a small bowl, mix the remining ¼ cup browned butter, flour, sugar, brown sugar, and salt to make the streusel topping.

  • Evenly sprinkle the streusel over the tops of the muffins.

  • Bake for 22-24 minutes.
