Top Review by Laura in Texas

Loved it! I took several suggestions that worked very well. I made this in an 8 inch square pan and it was the perfect size. Nothing spilled over, but it was a nice high dense, moist cake. I used half splenda, half sugar. Also, I used lowfat plain yogurt with 1 and a half tsp of vanilla added (a great way to cut sugar cause the 1 cup is more than enough). I used only 6 oz of chips and it is still very chocolaty and full of chips. I made these as muffins once before and 10 oz of chips was way too much for the batter to handle. I cooked this on 375 for about 35 minutes. Thanks for the inspiration!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine sugar and egg and blend well.
  2. Add the mashed bananas, applesauce, and yogurt and stir to combine.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips and set aside.
  4. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add to the wet mixture and stir until just blended- the batter will be lumpy.
  6. Pour the batter into muffins tins.
  7. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes- be careful not to let them get too brown.
