Banana chocolate muffins – only three ingredients.
This is one of those cheater recipes that no one else needs to know about : ).
This is a really old recipe that I published years ago. People are still making it and pinning it to Pinterest. Thought I would share this old favorite.
Banana chocolate muffins with only 3 ingredients?
Yes, it’s possible and they are delish. I was actually going to make my two ingredient banana muffins but didn’t have any plain cake mix. All I had in my pantry was chocolate cake mix.
Banana Chocolate muffins
A printable copy of the recipe is further down this post.
What are the the two ingredients:
Chocolate cake mix.
3-4 bananas, mashed.
Truly, these are the simplest Banana Chocolate muffins you will find! With just a box of chocolate cake mix, 3-4 medium bananas and a couple of eggs.

How do you make these three ingredient banana chocolate muffins?
1. Mash bananas
2. Add cake mix
3. Add eggs. I just gently drop them on the mix and use a fork to beat them before incorporating into the rest of the mix ingredients. Why dirty another dish!
4. Mix then place in 12 well muffin tin.
A huge tip that makes cleaning up a lot easier. I’ve started using scoops for a lot of my prep. work. For this recipe, I scoop the muffin dough. It makes sure each muffin well gets the same amount of dough and it doesn’t dribble onto the pan (or the counter). I also use them when I make my favorite meatballs and cookies! The kinds of scoops I use look like this (click on the picture of the scoops to see more info):
5. Bake at 350 Fahrenheit for 16-18 minutes.
Oh, these are good! The taste of bananas is definitely there, not totally overwhelmed by the chocolate. In my opinion, a perfect balance of banana and chocolate. I did add the 2 eggs to this recipe. Totally optional. But, I found it made the texture more similar to traditionally baked muffins.
Honestly, this is one of the best super easy cheating recipes!Print
