I have quite an unhealthy obsession with bananas. I can't go to the grocery store without buying a bunch of them. Sometimes two bunches.
I can't bake without them. See these Banana Nut Cinnamon Rolls. I also can't eat them once they turn yellow. (Yes, you read that right.)
It's a real dilemma, because then I have to go buy more bananas to eat. Meanwhile, the yellow bananas continue to ripen on the counter.
My husband will eat some of them, but he can't keep up with all the ones I buy. The kids don't eat them that often either.
I can only freeze so many. Currently, there are 2 (soon to be 3) very large Ziplock bags full of frozen banana chunks in our freezer. It's time to make more of this Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream.
And what did I do today? I bought more bananas at the store just because they were on sale. Clearly, I have some problems.
It's a very good thing that I bake a lot. And that I like to bake using a lot of bananas. I'm seeing more Banana Toffee Scones in our near future.
Breakfast muffins are always a hit around here because you can grab and go with them, so I knew I could use up some of those ripe bananas that way today.
These easy banana muffins got a healthy dose of s'mores goodness added to them. Graham cracker crumbs in a chocolate chip and marshmallow studded batter made these banana muffins an instant family favorite.
How to make Banana S'mores Muffins:
- Beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Then add the egg, vanilla, banana, and sour cream and mix again.
- Stir together the dry ingredients. Slowly add the milk and dry ingredients to the butter mixture until everything is mixed in. Do not over mix the batter.
- Stir the mini chocolate chips and marshmallow bits gently.
- Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners. Top each one with a few mini chips and marshmallow bits before baking.
- Let the muffins cool on a wire rack before placing them in a sealed container.
Our youngest and pickiest child couldn't stop eating these easy banana bread muffins. Clearly, that is a sign that I should go buy more bananas, just so I can make more of these Banana S'mores Muffins because he never eats anything I make!
I mean, that's the only logical thing to do, right?

My marshmallow melted in the oven, how come yours look so good like campfire roasted ones?!
Did you use the mini marshmallow bits? The tiny dehydrated ones like in hot chocolate packets?
I don’t have sour cream. Can I sub Greek yogurt?
Yes, Greek yogurt would work just fine instead of sour cream. I hope you enjoy the muffins.
Just made these! Haven't pulled the first batch out of the oven yet but I am sure they are going to be scrumptious. Made 48!! I feed a crowd! Wanted to mention for all of you who worry about muffins sticking to the liners - I lightly spray the liners and swish around a bit with my fingers! Yes, it takes an extra minute or two but since I am taking these muffins out to a large group, I want the paper liners and I want them not to stick. Spraying the liners works every time!!
I'm confused why you need 1 cup chips and 1 cup marshmallows when you only use 3/4 cup of each in the recipe. Can you help a girl out please? I tried sprinkling on top before baking and the first batch looked like Frankenstein! LOL. Thanks!!
Whoops! I forgot to say you sprinkle the remaining chips and bits on top of the batter before you bake the muffins. The recipe has been fixed to say that now. I hope you are enjoying your muffins!
I can't wait to try these!

I much prefer underripe bananas to overripe ones, so I hear ya! These look AMAZING!
It makes me so happy to know you like your bananas this way too:-)

Awesome Jocelyn! I have SO many ideas. I cannot eat bananas unless they are spotty. And, well, you saw how many I have in my freezer...
Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel
Those look SO good!

These look SO yummy! Bananas and s'mores... can it get any better?!
S'mores Muffins with Bananas.... wow... yes, I'll take a dozen!
A dozen should just about do it for you...unless you have to share;-)
S'mores for breakfast sounds perfect to me, especially with bananas! These look awesome!
Oh yum. We buy a lot of bananas too, but they never get ripe enough (brown enough) for me to bake! And the few that do get brown, usually ends up on a day when I don't have time so they get frozen.
LOVE these muffins.
Too funny, I think my husband has the same obsession! He buys the bananas and no one eats them. So the other day I made banana bars from Mel's Kitchen Cafe (look under "best recipe" and then "bars/brownies.") The kids devoured them! I was going to freeze some for school lunches but the entire large pan was gone.

These look fantastic! I love the way you staged these pictures - the orange juice and the pretty muffin paper cups - it just looks like an elegant breakfast - not to mention yummy! I often use smashed bananas and sour cream in my muffins too 🙂
Not sure if I would like choc marshmellow seasoning on my popcorn, but in my banana s'more muffin? Yes Please! Delish!
It was so yummy on the top of the muffin:-)
First of all I really liked hearing about your banana obsession. I've never actually tried a green banana, but I'm guessing they taste more starchy? This is such a creative use of popcorn seasoning! I can't wait to try the seasonings on rice like you mentioned. Thanks for sharing!! ~Jasmine
It's the only way I eat them:-) I'm not sure how to describe it other than not mushy and banana-y. Definitely try the seasonings on rice...it was fantastic that way!

The top of the muffin, the texture, it just looks...so wonderful. I am a muffin top thief, did I mention that? 🙂
Understandable...the muffin top is the best part:-)
