Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I had two bananas that were really starting to turn brown and the thought of just throwing them away made me sad.  I didn't want to just make banana bread because everytime I make it, I think I am going to eat it and then half the loaf gets eaten and the other half ends up in the garbage.  So I thought banana chocolate chip muffins would be a great idea and since school just started it would be a great breakfast on the go.  This recipe came out great and I love that it calls for plain yogurt.

1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup plain yogurt (I am sure vanilla yogurt would work fine too)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 mashed ripe bananas
3/4 cup chocolate chips

In large bowl mix dry ingredients.  In another bowl, combine the egg, oil, yogurt, and vanilla.  Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until moistened.  Fold in banana and chocolate chips.  Fill muffin pan, if not using liners then you must grease the pan.  This made just 12 muffins for me, and I filled the muffin cups almost to the top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


  1. Yum! Muffins are a great idea!
    That's what my sister does with her "old" bananas. I froze mine hoping to do the same but they'll probably just end up in trash (or at my sisters:) Hate throwing food away. I'll have to try this recipe.
