Banana Mocha Chip Muffins #MuffinMonday


Another month has flown by and it's Muffin Monday again!  I thought I'd be able to share a blueberry recipe this time around, but my berries weren't quite producing enough.  In an effort to clear out some freezer/pantry space, I chose these Banana Mocha Chip Muffins from Taste of Home.


I only made a few small changes.  I used 5t strongly brewed coffee in place of the instant, I don't keep any in the house. Nothing fancy flavorwise, just a morning blend.  I also sprinkled the tops of the muffins with turbinado sugar before baking.


I thought I'd sprayed the insides of the tin well, but should have done the flat surface as well.  A few of the tops separated from the bottoms, but they are still delicious. I pull them apart, eat the bottom first and then save the crunchy top for last anyway.



I'd like to do them as bite sized muffins next time and I think mini chips would work better for that. Thank you so much to Melissa W. for sharing her recipe!

  1. I love the addition of the turbinado sugar on top of your lovely muffins, Jolene. I have a bag of that good stuff in my cupboard but I never seem to remember to use it. Thanks for the nudge!

  2. These sound SO good to me - I love this flavor profile! I had carrot muffins on my "to bake" list this week - but these may have to bump them!

  3. Banana and mocha sounds like such a delicious combination! It's also great to clear out the freezer/pantry a bit too!

  7. What if you don't like coffee, what would you suggest as a substitute? They sound great otherwise!
