These easy chocolate Greek yogurt banana muffins are sweet, flavorful, super moist, and require just one bowl to make. Take advantage of over-ripe bananas with these super chocolate-y, bakery-style favorites!
I’m writing this from a hotel in Portland, where the hubby and I are nursing hangovers from a few too many artisanal cocktails last night, sipping on pour-over coffee, and watching live updates on the attacks in Brussels. Feeling a bit heavy about it all, so I’ll keep this one short and sweet.
We’re here through the end of the week, wandering/eating our way through the city, and so far Portland’s reputation for rain and delicious food and coffee has yet to disappoint. We’ve had some great luck so far but any restaurant recommendations or things-not-to-miss would be appreciated!
why you’ll love these chocolate Greek yogurt banana muffins
Before we left, there were some overly speckled bananas on the counter, begging to either be frozen for smoothies or baked into bread, and I chose the latter, whipping up a batch of chocolate Greek yogurt banana muffins based on this ever-popular recipe. I think y’all enjoy one-bowl recipes as much as I do!
I made a couple of adjustments for the ingredients on hand, and could not be happier with the results. Ripe bananas and creamy Greek yogurt combine in a one-bowl batter to create super flavorful, gently-domed muffins with an incredibly tender, moist crumb.
As with most things banana, be sure to wait until your bananas are just ever so past their prime, almost disgustingly black and spotted. The riper they are, the better your muffins will be. The banana flavor intensifies over time, though these didn’t last more than a couple of days in our house.
Tinged with a red hue from the natural cocoa, these muffins aren’t overtly chocolate-y, though it’s a nice complement to the banana. Sometimes I add a handful of chopped bittersweet chocolate or mini chocolate chips to the batter for slightly sweeter muffins with a more intense chocolate flavor, sometimes I don’t. Either way, these are a sweet and delectable morning treat. Enjoy!Print
