Banana Chocolate Yogurt Muffins

Thursday, August 15, 2013


What is the result of having three ripe bananas, a plethora of chocolate that doesn't interest a certain little boy in utero, and greek yogurt on hand? These wonderful muffins, that are especially delicious hot out of the oven with the chocolate melting into the cinnamon topping.


These are nearly identical to my Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Muffins with Cinnamon Sugar Topping, but made this time with banana and chocolate... a match made in heaven. I wanted to share how versatile this recipe is, and how you can truly get creative with different ingredients and flavors. Enjoy! (:


Banana Chocolate Yogurt Muffins
{makes about 1 dozen}

3 ripe bananas
1/2 C whole greek yogurt
1 C chocolate chips
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 C olive oil
1 egg
1 C raw sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tbs baking powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tbs vanilla extract

Topping:
1 tbs raw sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 bar of high quality milk chocolate, chopped

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Whisk the egg with the olive oil and add in the greek yogurt. Using a fork, mash in the bananas. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, nutmeg and vanilla, until just combined. Be careful not to stir too much or your muffins may collapse once out of the oven! Gently fold in the chocolate chips.  Fill a greased muffin pan {lined or not!} with the batter to the top for each cup. Be generous as you sprinkle on the topping on each muffin, and stick the chopped pieces of chocolate on top. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until you can place a toothpick in the middle of a muffin and it comes out dry.

  3. I have roughly a week and half longer of being prego...which means I only have a week and a half to indulge in my sweet cravings while using the fact that I'm pregnant as an excuse. I'm going to have to boycott your delicious sweet recipes from your blog once the baby is here, or I risk never losing my baby weight. Now I'm gonna go wait on my bananas to go ripe. lol.

    1. No no the first week post birth is exactly like being pregnant! "I just birthed a human being I will eat all the things!" Week 2 when you stop losing 10#s a day is when you realize you can't eat everything. Congrats on your baby!

      And now I need to figure out who will eat the rest of these since I'm in week two and can't eat all the things anymore...

  8. My husband and I LOVE banana chocolate muffins! I've never made them with yogurt though, so maybe I'll need to try these. I almost always end up making banana muffins, since I buy the bananas and neither of us tends to eat them (why I continue to buy them, I have no idea...). Thanks for the recipe my dear! xoxo
