Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins {Tasty Thursday}

May 8, 2013

Tonight, I took a page out of my friend, Nicolette’s book. She shared a picture of the most amazing looking banana muffins she made. And she added yogurt to the mix. I happened to have some very ripe bananas laying around and I so hate to waste food, so I decided to jazz up a basic banana muffin recipe, I’ve used before.

I used whole wheat flour, instead of white flour and Domino Light sugar and stevia blend, instead of regular white sugar. I jazzed up the recipe by adding a scant cup of Müller vanilla yogurt and one cup of Hershey’s Dark chocolate chip cookies. And oh my, did these muffins come out just delicious. They are so light and fluffy and moist and the chocolate chips are all melty and add just a little extra. My new favorite recipe. And they are kind off healthy, right?

Do you ever jazz up a recipe or do you follow directions to a T?

      You can just leave the chocolate chips out and it’ll still be good. 🙂

    adding yogurt? great idea!
    I sometimes add applesauce – it makes them very moist.
    but then….apple taste. not always good.

      I really enjoyed these, especially the little added twist of some Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate chips – so yum!
