Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Bundt Cakes

Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Bundt Cakes are mini versions of banana bread with chocolate chips and drizzled with a simple vanilla icing. They’re cute, individual sized little bundts that are perfect for breakfast or dessert.

I’ve got a recipe for that’s delicious, easy to make, and your kitchen will smell like a heavenly bakery. We’re making banana chocolate chip mini bundt cakes – because why settle for plain banana bread when you can level up with chocolate chips and a miniature bundt cake pan?

Obviously, this calls for really ripe bananas – the kind that practically beg to be mashed into oblivion and baked into something magnificent. If they aren’t black, that’s ok. As long as they’re really ripe and soft, that will be sufficient.

But wait…there’s more!

We’re not stopping at bananas.

Oh no, we’re throwing caution to the wind and tossing in a generous handful of chocolate chips. Because life is too short for dessert bread (or breakfast bread) to be anything less than decadent.

We can’t be boring here. The chocolate chips add something that tastes so elevated, so divine, that I can’t make it any other way since the first time I tried it. You can use regular chocolate chips or semi-sweet.

Some people say that brands don’t matter, but I’m telling you that with chocolate – brands matter. Think about the difference between those cheap little chocolate Easter bunnies and Hershey’s Easter bunnies or Dove chocolate bunnies. 

The absolute best chocolate chips to bake with (in my opinion) are Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips . They have such a divine flavor, and I haven’t found another brand yet that compares.
