Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

August 20, 2012 by Trina Comments Off

I don’t know about you but I’m a collector of recipes.  I was looking through mine the other day planning to use up some overripe bananas and discovered that I had about 5 different recipes for banana muffins/bread.  Some of them I’d not used in a while and I’d not made notes on them so I coudn’t remember if I had liked how they turned out.

I hemmed and hawed over it forever until I finally decided to combine what I liked about a few of them into one recipe.  This is what I came up with:

Trina’s {Partially Whole Wheat} Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup yogurt  {plain, vanilla or even strawberry!}
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 over ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup chocolate chips {I use semi sweet}


1. Combine the first 4 ingredients {wet: egg, applesauce, yogurt, vanilla} in a bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, combine the next five ingredients {dry: flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt}.

3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.

4. Fold in bananas and chocolate chips.

5. Bake at 350* for 20-25 mins  {I did 22 mins}


The yogurt in these muffins helps to maintain moisture even when they are a few days old.  I ate these for breakfast last week with my chai tea latte {aka hug in a cup} and it was delicious!
