banana & yogurt muffins


the little she loves muffins.
more than snow. more than puppy dawgs. more than chocolate. more than dora. probably more than her own family.
she seriously goes ca-razy (insert pauly shore voice) when i tell her we have muffins, will be making muffins, or will be eating muffins that day.

these are her favorite muffins these days. and mine too.
probably because it means i get to be in the kitchen with her: mixing, testing each banana, stirring the sugar, testing the batter in each muffin cup, whisking the flour, testing it again…

banana & yogurt muffins
adapted from chobani


1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (regular or greek style)

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

4 ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup grapeseed or canola oil

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg


1. preheat oven to 350. lightly spray muffin tins with non-stick spray (i like to use coconut oil spray).

2. in a medium sized bowl whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until combined. in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat mashed bananas, brown sugar, yogurt, oil, vanilla, and egg. slowly add dry ingredients and mix on low until combined.

3. scoop batter into muffin tins (or paper cups) and bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. cool on a wire rack.
