Crazy Monkey Breakfast Muffins – Delicious and Nutritious!

crazy monkey breakfast muffins

These Crazy Monkey Breakfast Muffins are loaded with peanut butter, bananas, chocolate chips and oats. They are a sweet yet nutritious way to start the day. These muffins are easy to make and a great way to use those brown bananas sitting on your counter right now. Make a batch today for a quick and easy breakfast to grab and go!

Here are some tips for making my Crazy Monkey Breakfast Muffins:

  • Super ripe bananas are perfect for this recipe! If you have some brown bananas that you are about to toss in the trash – don’t! Brown bananas are the best for baking.
  • I like to use silicone baking cups for my muffins, because they are completely non-stick and the cleanup is so easy. If you would rather use paper baking cups or just a greased pan, either of those will work fine.
  • Don’t overwork the batter! Just mix the dry ingredients in until they are combined. Mixing too much can lead to tough dense muffins.
  • I use regular size semisweet chocolate chips for this recipe, but you could use mini chips or chunks and they could be dark chocolate, milk chocolate or whatever you prefer.

You will need the following ingredients to make this recipe:

  • Unsalted butter
  • Granulated sugar
  • Bananas
  • Peanut butter
  • Vanilla extract
  • An egg
  • Flour
  • Quick oats
  • Baking soda
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Chocolate Chips
