So...I like muffins. A LOT. And I will go out of my way to eat/make/bury myself underneath them for as long as I live!
But, I'm cutting weight. So these muffins were a way of getting rid of some quite ripe bananas and a treat for my coworkers after an extraordinarily long week. This recipe is based on Running with Spoons: Banana Oat Greek Yogurt Muffins. She is one of my absolute FAVORITE food bloggers and has the most incredible recipes. I like to put my own variation on them but check out her site for the cooking how to's, original recipes, and healthy eating ideas!
Ingredients yields approx. 15 muffins:
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 medium ripe bananas
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- As many dark chocolate chips as your heart desires!! I used chocolate chunks and saved a few to put 3 pieces on the top of each muffin.
Cook it up:
- Spray a muffin tin or liners thoroughly with oil; these suckers are dense and they WILL stick to the paper if not properly coated.
- Bake at 400F for approx. 20 minutes
Well, I had a grand total of ZERO left after I doubled the above recipe and made about 30 muffins! These were super filling because of the whole wheat flour but also ooooh so soft because of the greek yogurt and bananas. I will definitely be making them again!
