Important Ingredients with Substitutions
- Bisquick Mix
- Egg - A room-temperature large egg will incorporate into the batter more easily.
- Vanilla Extract
- Oil - Any vegetable oil will work. I almost exclusively use Avocado Oil.
- Ripe Bananas - Check below for how to ripen bananas on your own. Using really ripe bananas will add the right amount of sweetness so we don't need to add any additional sugar.
- White Sugar
- Cinnamon - Just a teaspoon of cinnamon will elevate the flavor of Bisquick pancake mix.
- Chocolate Chips, plus extra for topping

Instructions for ripening bananas
If your bananas are almost there but not quite, or you’ve just gone grocery shopping and have fresh bananas and need to make banana muffins. Because we NEED to make banana muffins! Prepare yourself super ripe bananas that offer the best banana flavor.
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 300 F
Place your bananas on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 - 20 minutes
Step 2: Don’t be alarmed if they turn to very dark brown bananas. Inside your bananas will be the perfect doneness and ready to be made into bread. Brown bananas are good bananas.
Step 3: While still on the baking sheet, cut the banana open and scoop out the inside with a spoon into a measuring cup. For this recipe, we’re looking for 1 ½ cups of mashed banana.
Instructions for bisquick banana muffins with chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 400 F and line a muffin pan with paper muffin liners or cupcake liners. Either works, just use one that stands about a half inch over the top of the pan. I used jumbo paper liners in my regular cupcake pan.
Step 1: In a medium bowl, smash together 3 ripened bananas.
Step 2: In a large bowl add the Bisquick baking mix, egg, vanilla, oil, bananas, sugar, and cinnamon. Mix until just combined.
Step 3: Add in the chocolate chips and mix again. Try not to overmix.
Step 4: Use a large spoon or cookie scoop to divide batter into the liners filling only ¾ of the way full.
Step 5: Place a generous amount of chocolate chips on top of your muffin batter.
Step 6: Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and the edges are golden brown.
Store your muffins in an airtight container between layers of paper towel to avoid unnecessary moisture accumulation. Store at room temperature for up to 4 days, and longer if stored in the refrigerator. But do note that your muffins will dry out in the fridge.
Can I freeze leftover Bisquick banana muffins? Yes! A great idea if you'd like to save them for longer than a week. Let your muffins cool completely on a wire rack, wrap each muffin in plastic wrap place in a large freezer bag. When you're having a craving, remove one (or two!) from the freezer and allow it to thaw for an hour or two in the fridge.

Leftover muffins: For best results heat your muffin for 20-30 seconds in the microwave before serving. The insides will be gooey and chocolaty. Feel free to add a little butter too!
Replace the oil with applesauce for a healthier muffin, the texture and cooking time may vary. I haven't tested this.
Replace some or all of the chocolate chips with peanut butter chips, chopped nuts, cranberries, or raisins to your batter before baking for a different type of muffin
