I had bananas and yogurt in the house, and I wanted to bake some muffins, so I combined two recipes and came up with these moist muffins. Because they have yogurt in them, they have less oil and no butter, making them healthier than most!
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup non-fat vanilla yogurt (or lowfat)
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons skim milk (or lowfat)
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 ripe bananas (chopped)
- In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and mix In another bowl, combine yogurt, egg, milk, and oil.
- Add contents of wet mixture to dry ingredients and mix- do not over mix.
- Stir in bananas (you can also add chopped nuts or other fruits if you want) Place batter in muffin tins.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
Love that these have banana chunks instead of the usual mashed banana! I used whole-wheat flour and added 1/2 t. vanilla extract and a t. rum extract...MMMM! I also threw walnuts on the top so that they would get toasted during baking.
I came here looking specifically for a recipe for banana yogurt muffins, and this is what came up in the search. I made them, and we enjoyed them. I was intending to give it a four star rating. I think five stars should be reserved for something that could not possibly better. But I glanced at the recipe this morning and realized I had erred in making it and left out an entire ingredient. The fact that the muffins STILL turned out good speaks highly of the recipe. Five stars it is!
I wanted to love these. I was happy to find a recipe to use up yogurt and bananas and start the day with something fresh baked. Something went wrong. The general taste was good, and my kids each ate two, but the outsides were tough. I did not use muffin papers-maybe that was a mistake. The mix seemed much dryer than typical muffin mix. I will give them another try.
