Chocolate and banana fan? You are going to love these muffins!

Today, I bring you one of my favourite muffin recipes – Chocolate Banana Muffins. These muffins are incredibly moist from the bananas and Greek-style yogurt used, and they have just the right amount of chocolate. The chocolate and banana pair perfectly in these muffins. You have GOT to try one warm out of the oven!

To make these muffins, simply combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in another. Combine both mixtures together, and divide the batter between muffin cases. Bake at 180C/350F for about 25 – 30 minutes. Mine were done at 27 minutes, but keep checking them from 20 – 25 minutes. You want a toothpick inserted into the centres to come out clean with a few moist crumbs.

Grab a muffin while it’s still warm out the oven – SO GOOD.

  2. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Toss in the chocolate chips. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the eggs, banana, vanilla, vegetable oil, and yogurt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.

    These look to die for!!! Is there anything you would suggest to use instead of the Greek yogurt? I’m sure that’s what makes them moist and delicious but my boyfriend is extremely lactose intolerant, so if there are any alternatives I would be all over these! Thanks for posting!

      Hi Shannon! You could use a lactose-free yogurt, or even silken tofu 🙂

        Do you use the plain Greek yogurt?

    Given that my birthday was just 4 days ago and my son’s was last week, plus valentine’s day . . . you’d think I’d be over chocolate cake. But oh no. This just revs up the chocolate engine again. lolol. These look wonderful. I like that Greek yogurt is in the ingredients list. Makes me feel a little “healthy.” Thanks!

    Chocolate and banana is such a great combo. It’s like cookies and milk to me. You just can’t go wrong with it. I used to like a little banana flavoring in my mochas, so I’m sure to love these!

      Hi Erika, you could try the high temp trick. Bake the muffins at 425F/220C for the first 5 minutes, then reduce the temp to 350F/180C and bake for the remaining time until done. I didn’t do this because I found they had a nice rise anyway. Let me know how it goes! 🙂

    Chocolate and banana is such an amazing combo. I love using Greek Yoghurt in my muffin recipes also so I know these will be good!

    Hi Marsha, my kids exams will be getting over next week. So I would love to try this. Can I use the Indian yoghurt/curd instead of Greek yoghurt as I stay in India.

      You can use sour cream, or buttermilk instead 🙂
