  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (spooned into measuring cups and leveld off)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 very ripe bananas (see note)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs at room temperature & lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper liners or use a silicon muffin tin, sprayed lightly with cooking spray
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt until very well combined.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the bananas, sugar, oil, eggs, yogurt, and vanilla.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Add the batter to the prepared muffin tins, filling each one 2/3 full. The batter should divide evenly to make 18 muffins
  • Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown around the edges and a toothpick in the middle of a muffin in the middle of the pan comes out with just a few crumbs. Remove from the oven, and once cool to the touch remove the muffins from the tin.
  • Allow the muffins to come to room temperature. Store in an airtight container for 4 to 5 days.


White it is very tempting to brown your bananas in the oven in order to speed along their ripening (i.e. make it instantaneous), I would urge you to let them age on their own. This brings out their natural sugars, thus making for sweeter muffins.
