Double Chocolate Banana Muffins - The Southern Lady Cooks

Double chocolate banana muffins are wonderful with coffee for breakfast and as a dessert.  We absolutely love these double chocolate banana muffins split in half with a scoop of ice cream and then drizzle my hot fudge sauce recipe over the top.  Children will love these muffins as a snack with milk and they would be great in a lunchbox for a treat. These muffins are always wonderful during the holiday season, decorated with sprinkles. Super easy and so good!

Double chocolate banana muffins simple ingredients:





Vanilla extract

All-purpose flour

100% cocoa

Baking powder

Baking soda



Chocolate chips

Walnuts or pecans, (Optional)

Glaze is super simple, just powdered sugar and milk. These muffins are very versatile, you can easily leave the glaze off for just a simple chocolate banana muffin. These are for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee. They reheat well too. Keep them in a air tight container and they will keep for a few days.

“The double chocolate muffine recipe is a winner. Actually, I made them triple chocolate by adding cocoa to your glaze and added a pecan half on top. Super recipe!” – Pat

If you are like my family, we always have bananas that need to be used. This delicious Maple Banana Bread is one of our most popular recipes. It’s absolutely delicious!
