My husband had bought way too many bananas thinking our 3 year old who usually loves them in her smoothies or oatmeal would eat them, but that one week, she was totally off bananas so I was left with 3 very over ripe bananas by the end of the week. Instead of throwing them away, I decided to make these muffins for her. My hubby and I ate a couple of them too (they are perfect with a cup of coffee or chai for the adults!) – They are just delicious … Hope you enjoy them
3 Bananas, mashed
1 cup plain greek yogurt
2 1/4 cups Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/4 cup Brown sugar
1 cup Chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
4 tbsp Butter
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line the muffin tins with cupcake wrappers.
In a bowl I first mixed the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, first cream together the sugar and butter. To it add the mashed bananas, eggs,vanilla and the yogurt and mix together.
Slowly add the flour mixture to this and mix until combined. If you are adding chocolate chips, you can add it now, but its totally optional.
I poured about 1/4 cup worth of battter into each muffin cup, and then baked for around 20 minutes. Allow it to cool before taking them out of the tin.
Store the leftovers in an airtight container. I like them lightly warmed, maybe for around 20 seconds in the microwave and then spread a little butter … yum! yum!
