Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Apr 4, 2021

Well, another day, another bunch of bananas has turned brown… you COULD put them in the freezer again for future smoothies or “nice cream” OR you could make a batch or two of these delicious muffins right now!

Let’s start with gathering all the ingredients you will need!

1 1/2 CupsWhole Wheat Flour
1 TspBaking Soda
1 TspBaking Powder
1/2 TspSalt
2 ScoopsVital Proteins Collagen Powder
3/4 CupCoconut Sugar
3Bananas (Mashed)
1/3 CupNon-Fat Plain Yogurt
1 TspVanilla Extract
1/2 TspCinnamon
1/2 cup + 2 TbspDark Chocolate Chips


Here’s how I put together a batch of these muffins…

First, I mash the bananas, then I add in the coconut sugar and mix really well.
Second, I add the egg, yogurt, & vanilla extract and continue to mix until well-combined.
Next, I add the whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, collagen, and cinnamon. I slowly mix until just combined.
Finally, I add in 1/2 cup of the dark chocolate chips.

This recipe makes 10 muffins, so I scoop the mixture into the muffin tins filling each slot about 1/2-3/4 the way up.
Once 10 of the slots are filled, I use the last 2 tablespoons of the chocolate chips to top the muffins with before going into the preheated oven (350 degrees).
Depending on your oven, these should take about 20-25 minutes to bake.

I always take them out of the oven and eat one right out of the oven (which is why only 9 are pictured), so the chocolate chips burn the roof of my mouth, but totally worth it!
I will let the rest cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then on the rack until fully cooled.
These will stay fresh in an airtight container on the counter for a couple days, but I personally like them cold out of the fridge (don’t knock it until you try it!). They last in the fridge for at least a week if not longer (they are already eaten by this point in our house haha). You can also freeze them and pop them in the microwave for a quick snack.

I input all the ingredients into the My Fitness Pal app to calculate the macros per serving

I hope you give this recipe a try! If you do, please let me know what you think!
