"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!





“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.

12 muffins

    I just made a batch of these (with a few little changes) and they are yummo! Thanks for the great recipe. I printed this out back when you first posted it, so I am a little slow here. But these were worth the wait 🙂

    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)?

    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.

    Question, could I replace the yogurt for milk? I just realized I’m out of yogurt!

    I came across your website yesterday and am in love! I went from being in a food rut to suddenly feeling excited with all your great ideas and the pictures really top it off. My toddler and I are always making muffins and I want to try this recipe. I just have a quick question, I’m always going through bananas so fast we don’t always have them on hand when I want them for something like this, are there any good substitutes for bananas in baking? Does applesauce work?

    I made these today. They are so delicious! I could only make a few with the coconut because I’m the only one eats it. They don’t taste “healthy”; the kids will never know.
    Thanks for all your delicious-looking recipes.

    I just made these and realized half way through that I was out of chocolate chips! I was so mad so I used peanut butter chips and they were still fabulous. Next time I might use half chocolate and half pb chips. The extra pb flavor was awesome. All your creations are so amazing. Thanks for another great recipe!
