Banana-Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins (made with Greek yogurt)

February 24, 2011

I am so excited to share this recipe for Banana-Dark Chocolate Muffins. It’s a twist of my very popular banana bread recipe. What’s great about it besides the taste is that all of the ingredients can be combined in one bowl, and no mixer is needed. I use nonfat Greek yogurt which adds moisture and increases the protein. These muffins are amazing, and my kids went wild over them. I almost wasn’t able to take a picture of them before they ate them all. Enjoy these muffins for a wonderful breakfast treat, afternoon snack, lunch, or dinnertime dessert.

Banana-Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Yield: 16 muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 large eggs
11/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1 (6-ounce) container nonfat Greek yogurt (I used Fage)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1 Cooking spray
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, butter, eggs, bananas, yogurt and vanilla in a large bowl, mixing well. Fold in chocolate chips gently. Pour batter into muffins pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 to 22 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

Bananas and dark chocolate are a match made in heaven. And you gotta love a treat that can double as breakfast or dessert. :-)

I used to LOVE chocolate chip muffins, but banana chocolate chip sounds perfect! Love that they aren't loaded with a ton of butter.

I have made these muffins many times, they are yummy. I now substitute the 1/4 cup of melted butter, for 1/4 cup of puree'd avacado. It totally works and is very delicious. When substituting butter with avacado the ratio is the same..Then I made some with very ripe pears as I had no banana's, again the same amount of banana used in the original recipe is used with the pears. Just mush them as best as you can, it's okay if you have lumps, just makes the muffins better..
