Kids will ask for more! If you love the mix of banana and chocolate you will love these light muffins! A R. Reisman recipe. I have made this recipe both with plain yogurt and sour cream and they always turn out great.

Great light sweet treat!! I used applesauce in place of the oil and low fat vanilla yogurt. VERY moist! Thanks.

I was so surprised how moist these turned out! Only yogurt in the fridge was pomegranate greek yogurt but it worked beautifully nonetheless! Definitely a keeper recipe.

Made double version. Got 18 muffins that were good size. I divided double version without addition of chocolate chips and divided it in three bolls. In one I added chocolate chips; Another coconut flakes and last raisins. Chocolate chips went first. Coconut addition was OK, more for adults; raisins went in school lunches as chocolate is not allowed.
I was worried that muffins would be too heavy or overly moist, but it had a nice light texture without being crumbly. My family loved it.
