Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

  • 1.5 Tbsp Butter, softened
  • 3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp White Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1.5 Tbsp Canola Oil
  • 5 Brown Bananas, smashed
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 C Flour
  • 3/4 C Chocolate chips

Peanut Butter Yogurt Frosting

  • 1/2 C Plain Whole Milk Greek Yogurt Regular plain yogurt will also work.
  • 1/2 C Teddies Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon


  • Mix the butter and sugars together until very well blended. Mix in the egg and beat thoroughly by hand. Add in the oil, bananas and vanilla and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, mix all remaining dry ingredients.
  • Carefully mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just barely blended. You will still see some small flour patches in the batter. If you over-mix it, the muffins will become rubbery.
  • Line 12 muffin tins with paper cupcake liners and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter into the cups, filling almost to the top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350-degrees, or until a knife just barely comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin.
  • While muffins are baking, mix all frosting ingredients well - it should be the consistency of buttercream frosting.
  • Once muffins are done, let cool for 10 minutes before removing fro the tin to cool the rest of the way.
  • Once cool, top with a thick layer of the frosting. Store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
