  • 3 each Bananas over-ripe, with brown spots
  • ¾ Cup Sugar
  • 2 each Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ¾ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • Cup Greek Yogurt plain
  • 1 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips optional


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer, add the ripe bananas, sugar, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Using the paddle attachment, mix them together for about a minute to break up any large pieces (you can also use a hand mixer if you want).
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt and add about half into the bowl with the banana mixture. Mix for a few seconds, and add the Greek yogurt.
  • Add the rest of your dry ingredients and mix on low, just until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Do not overmix! Small lumps of banana are ok.  
  • Gently fold in the mini chocolate chips with a spatula, if using.
  • Grease muffin tins (even non-stick) using baking spray or butter, and spoon the batter in, filling them about ⅔ full. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Use a cake tester or toothpick to check if they are baked through.  You may want to rotate your pan halfway through baking.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before removing from the baking tins to cool completely. Enjoy!



  • Instead of directly spraying and filling muffin tins, you can use cupcake liners if you prefer.  It's still good to spray them.  
  • If you don’t use chocolate chips in this recipe you will probably get closer to 15 muffins.
