I decided to do some baking yesterday morning.  I had three bananas that were beginning to turn and a small bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips that I had bought in Lancaster.  So I ended up making some chocolate chip banana muffins.  My go-to for using up over-ripened bananas is usually banana bread, but I love a good muffin!

Muffins are one of my favorite baked goods to make because, not only are they just so good, but they’re pretty convenient to have around the house!  I’ll pack a couple for the boo to take to work with him or sit down and have one at night with a cup of coffee (decaf so I can actually get some sleep!).  

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins


Whether you eat muffins for breakfast or dessert, you can’t deny that this handheld treat is always fun to eat!  These Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are simple to make, really moist, and so delicious!  I love banana baked goods on their own, but you can’t deny that chocolate chips make baked goods even better!

The banana and chocolate add extra sweetness and flavor to these muffins.  But the secret ingredient is plain Greek yogurt!  We like to add it to a lot of our baked recipes because it keeps them moist and goes undetected!  This recipe makes a small batch of a muffins.  Six to be exact!  A smaller batch means a bigger muffin!

These muffins were so good that we only had two left the day after I made them!  They’re light, airy, and the addition of Greek yogurt keeps them moist and delicious! 

If you want to make these and freeze them for later, let them cool completely and then place them in plastic baggies or a storage container.  They’ll keep in the freezer for about three months.  Of course, if you’re anything like us, they probably won’t make it that long!
