Easy to make! Easy to eat! Yum! Made exactly as directed and turned out great.
I was looking for an amazing recipe for my leftover bananas and I finally found it!!! I LOVE these muffins. They are so moist and has the perfect chocolate and banana combination. The only thing I did different was instead of regular semi sweet chocolate chips, I used miniature semi sweet chocolate chips. I highly recommend this recipe for anyone who has overly ripe bananas and wants to use them!
This recipe appealed to me because of the yogurt - I had never made muffins with yogurt but imagined it would make them moist. Well, it did! This recipe is so good that I may not be able to make it again because I am eating too many of them! I've been searching for a moist muffin recipe for a long time and finally found it. I cut the sugar down to 1/2c, cut the oil to 1/4c and made up the other 1/4c with applesauce, added cinnamon (goes in nearly everything I bake), and used vanilla yogurt b/c that is all I had, and then also cut the vanilla to 1/2 tsp. Oh, and used 1c white flour and 3/4c whole wheat flour. Lastly, I mixed the bananas into the wet ingredients b/c I didn't want to take the chance of the batter getting too stiff from too many folds of ingredients.
Made this for a snack for my 4 year old to take for a school treat. Made a double batch so we had some at home and they were gone in a day. Everybody loved them.
I first made this recipe almost exactly as printed, but I substituted 1/2 of the sugar with Splenda. They were great! To make Banana/Peanut Butter/Chocolate Chip muffins the second time I made them, I used only 1 banana mashed and added a BIG scoop of peanut butter (creamy) and a little applesauce to make a full cup instead of using all banana. I also used proportionally about 1/3 whole wheat flour to 2/3 regular flour (to get the 1 3/4 C. flour needed). This time I used all Splenda to sweeten them. I used semi-sweet choc chips, but next time I think I will use peanut butter chips instead. I sprayed muffin tins and did not use paper liners. Bake 350 for about 20 min. Outstanding!!!
