Healthy Banana Muffins with Greek Yogurt

Choose nuts for super healthy banana muffins. But, even with chocolate chips, these get a seal of approval. Whole wheat flour, Greek yogurt and lots of sweet banana make these moist and hard to resist and very healthy.

Healthy Banana Muffin Recipe with Greek Yogurt

Next time you have two lonely, unwanted, over-ripe bananas sitting on your counter, don’t throw them out.  When I’m not making Banana Oatmeal Cookies, I enjoy these healthy banana muffins with Greek Yogurt. The riper the bananas, the sweeter the result!

This scenario happens far too often at our house. Sometimes I freeze the bananas, or make easy ice cream. But, I’d rather freeze these muffins instead to pull out for a healthy breakfast or snack.

I like to keep lots a fruit around, so we make good choices. But, last week I could just tell…it was going to happen again. So, I made up the dry ingredients and waited…and watched…and eventually…

I enjoyed a nice batch of Healthy Banana Muffins!

Healthy Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chips or Nuts

This is the zucchini muffin recipe…exactly…except that it uses mashed bananas instead of zucchini and nuts or chocolate chips instead of cranberries. I used whole wheat pastry flour and they tasted great! I also use my favorite stevia/sugar blend to lower the sugar content.

Healthy Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chips or Nuts

Guess what got mixed in to this batch? Special request by my chocoholics. They are so moist!

Healthy Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chips or Nuts

I’ll take two please!

These would store well in the freezer. But, I never get the chance to freeze any. The recipe makes about 8 muffins. Next time, I’m going to leave an entire bunch of bananas sitting on the counter. 🙂
