Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Quick and easy muffins to satisfy your sweet tooth! The bananas make it healthy…. ish. ;-)

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375°F

Use a 12 cup muffin tin and spray with non-stick cooking spray or line with baking cups. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork.

Mix in sugar, egg, yogurt, and peanut butter and stir until well combined.

In another bowl, sift flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together.

Combine wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, mixing lightly with a rubber spatula to combine. Fold in chocolate chips. The batter should be just moistened but still a little clumpy. Don’t over-mix or you will have very dense muffins.

Divide batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Enjoy!
