"Healthier" Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins…

Tags: , ,

Hi everyone, yes as you can see, I have another banana peanut butter recipe for you and these muffins are so good! I had a friend give me 3 big cases of yogurt last week and I told her I’d make a batch of somewhat healthy muffins to repay the favor. You’ll be so happy eating one of these bad boys for breakfast, they are soft and full of fabulous flavor! I baked one muffin in a small ramekin then wrapped it up for my friend. Give it a try, it makes a cute homemade gift!

No worries if you are not a coconut fan, just leave it out. I made half with coconut topping for me and half without to satisfy my picky coconut hating husband! Hope you all enjoy!

“Healthier” Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

4 Tablespoons softened butter
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 Cup plain low-fat vanilla yogurt
2/3 Cup sugar
heaping 1/4 Cup creamy peanut butter

1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1/2 Cup whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1/4 Cup coarse sugar (I used Turbinado sugar)
1/2 Cup shredded sweetened coconut

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place butter, eggs, bananas, yogurt, sugar and peanut butter into a large mixing bowl. Mix to combine. Place all dry ingredients into a separate large bowl and stir to combine. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips until just combined. Scoop into muffin tins lined with paper cups 2/3 way full. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and shredded coconut. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center.

    I just made these and they taste wonderful. I was surprised and concerned though about all the oil(?) at the bottom of the muffin tins when I pulled the muffins out. I used paper liners which were soaked. Never had this happen before on any muffins so I was a bit worried, but the muffins tasted great.

    What size ramekin did you use? Did you spray it first (non stick spray) and how long at at what temp did you cook (in ramekins)?
