Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Banana chocolate chip muffins are easy to make and can be whipped up in minutes for a freshly baked breakfast treat. I always have bananas stocked on the counter, but not all of them get eaten at their peak, can you relate?

Don’t let those brown speckled overripe bananas go to waste, turn them into these delicious muffins. I’ve made a few healthier ingredient swaps to add whole grains and protein. You won’t believe how moist and flavorful they are. If you want a quick breakfast solution or snack, let’s get started, it’s time to bake

How To Make Banana Muffins

There are a couple of substitutions that can be seamlessly incorporated into the muffin batter to add more nutrition to each bite.

Using whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose provides whole grains and fiber in each serving. I use white whole wheat flour to give a milder and sweet flavor and lighter color to the banana chocolate muffins. From an appearance and texture standpoint, the changes are barely noticeable.

One medium-sized banana provides about 1.3 grams of protein, and this recipe contains four! A ½ cup of plain Greek yogurt which contains 15 grams of protein is a nice way to give an additional boost to each muffin. If you have ever used sour cream to make a cake moister, the tart yogurt does something similar, as the acid helps to tenderize the wheat proteins. Double bonus!
