Banana Cinnamon Chip Muffins are the best! These lovely muffins taste like banana bread with loads of bananas, cinnamon, cinnamon chips and pecans. I love muffins and banana muffins are some of my very favorites. While I already have several banana muffin recipes with chocolate chips, chocolate chips, streusel and icing, some with miniature chocolate chips and streusel, and others with double chocolate flavor with cocoa and chocolate chips, you can never have too many Banana Muffin recipes!
While Banana Cinnamon Chip Muffins make for great regular breakfast fare, these make great snacks during the day, as well as treats for holiday breakfasts, baby showers, and even potlucks. I made up a batch of these muffins for construction workers who are working on our new house last month. They were gobbled up incredibly fast.
While I haven’t made treats for every single work crew, I’ve made a lot for them over the past six months. We are finally hoping to close on our new home by the end of the month. Hurray! We are both sooooo ready to get our stuff out of storage and have our own furniture and stuff again. While I brought some things with us to our furnished rental house, it was fairly bare bones, so it will be interesting combing through all the boxes again and finding things we’ve missed.

Banana Cinnamon Chip Muffins are incredibly easy to make.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place sugar, banana, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, egg, butter, vanilla and cream in a mixing bowl.
Whisk ingredients until combined.
Add UNBLEACHED all purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add pecans and cinnamon chips.
Stir ingredients just to combine. Do not overmix.
Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. Evenly divide muffin batter into muffin tins. Fill almost to the top. Sprinkle about 10-15 more cinnamon chips on top of each muffin.
Bake at 425 for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake an additional 15-19 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Banana Cinnamon Chip Muffins are great for breakfast or snacks.
These muffins have incredibly sweet cinnamon flavor. They are yummy indeed.
