"Healthier" Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins…
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!
4 Tablespoons softened butter
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.
