Skinny Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins – Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or white whole wheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas
  • 1/4 cup honey or agave
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon olive or melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Cook’s note:

I subbed agave for the honey in this skinny banana chocolate chip muffin recipe as it was what I had on hand. It worked beautifully so feel free to use either.

For the yogurt, any amount of fat will do. I used whole milk greek yogurt because I had it in the fridge, but you may use non-fat or low-fat as you prefer.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 12 cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.

Step 2

Add bananas, honey, vanilla, oil, egg, milk and yogurt to a blender. Blend on high for 1 minute or until well combined, smooth and creamy. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

Step 3

Divide batter evenly into muffin tin, sprinkle each muffin with a few more chocolate chips and bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean or with just a few crumbs attached.

Step 4

Cool muffins for 5 minutes then remove and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Muffins are best served warm and even better the next day. Makes 12 muffins.
