Moist but fluffy coffee banana muffins with chocolate chips, and topped with chopped walnuts. Truly a deep, grown-up version for banana muffins. Enjoy them with a cup of coffee – yum!


Units Scale


  • 200 g plain flour
  • 60 g caster sugar
  • 40 g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 100 g melted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 280 g bananas, mashed (about 2 – 3 pcs)
  • 6 tbsp instant coffee powder
  • 90 g hot water
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 65 g semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • 40 g walnuts, chopped coarsely


Prep Work:

  1. Melt the butter and allow it to cool. Add coffee powder to hot water and mix well. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C. Place liners into muffin pans.


  1. Whisk together flour, both sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk together wet ingredients (melted butter, eggs, banana, coffee) in another mixing bowl.
  3. Make a well in center of the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients. Whisk together till there are no traces of flour left. Do not over-mix. Add in chocolate chips and mix briefly.
  4. Spoon or pour batter into liners to about 90% full. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on top.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 200C for 15 – 20 mins, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. (There may be melted chocolate staining the skewer, so take note)
  6. Cool completely on cooling rack before storing in air tight container. These muffins taste better the next day.
