Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

1 box yellow cake mix
3 very ripe bananas (abt. 1 1/2 C)
1/2 C water
1/4 C margarine or butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 C chocolate chips (mini or regular)

Preheat oven to 375
Mix everything but the chocolate chips for three minutes. Stir in the chocolate chips. Bake for 18-22 minutes. Makes 24 cupcakes.

Carrot cake cupcakes: Change the bananas to grated carrots, either use a spice cake mix or add 2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg (or 1 C cinnamon chips and omit chocolate chips) to the yellow cake mix. The chocolate chips are optional.

These are great with or without cream cheese frosting.


  1. Oooooo! That sounds really good.

    In my house, we'd have to take turns between the carrot and the banana (cuz I'm not a big banana person).

    Can this be made as mini-loaves?

  2. Yes it can. Let me know what you think.

  3. This is great. My son likes to make banana bread and he adds chocolate chips to that. He'd like this a lot.

    Thanks for sharing.
