After School Snack - Choco Banana Muffins

Today for an after school snack I am making banana chocolate chip muffins. My kids love muffins!


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the egg, oil, yogurt and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in bananas and chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.


  1. I am going to try these as soon as my bananas turn mushy (and they always do) We are always looking for a variety in snacks especially ones that are semi healthy.

    I am so glad you found me, as soon as I looked at your blog it brought back so many awesome memories. Your kids are so adorable, along with you and your oldest girl looks just like you.
