Yoghurt Banana Choc Chip Muffins

I had 2 bananas and a packet of dark chocolate chips next to each other on the counter and had an idea to turn them into muffins – brilliant idea, they turned out perfectly – super light and moist.  I was so proud of my efforts that I called my friend Moira to come and photograph my creation.  These muffins are well worth making and come together in a cinch.  🙂

Thanks Moira for the beautiful pictures.

  1. These really look like a perfect way to begin the day. They’d disappear in no time on my table. I’m new to your blog and have spent some time poking around. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers. I’ll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  2. Oh this sounds like a great combo! It is about lunch here but I feel like going for breakfast another round with this recipe 🙂

  3. i love using yogurt in cakes, keep them moist longer, not that the cakes would last that long anyhow.
    now, these muffins, wish I had a magic wand and have them ready for breakfast

  4. Ahhh you are torturing me here, Mandy! I am on a no-dessert/sweets diet for a little while so this is killing me… Maybe I will make an exception just for this…

  5. I stopped by via Martha’s virtual party. I can’t believe all the great recipes. Gotta be careful or you all will make me really fat!

    I love that these are made with yoghurt!
