Healthy Chocolate Banana Muffins

Servings: 12 muffins
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 40 mins
These Chocolate Banana Muffins are the best way to satisfy that ravenous morning sweet tooth without all the sugar (and excess calories and fat).

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a standard muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
  • In a stand mixer bowl fitted with a beater attachment, add the bananas, Greek yogurt, erythritol, egg whites, vanilla and stevia.  Mix on medium speed until completely mixed through.
  • Turn off the mixer and dump in the dry ingredients.  Mix on low speed until JUST incorporated (do not overmix!).  Fold in ¼ cup of the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin tin.  Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top of the muffin batter.  Bake for ~19 minutes, or until the muffins spring back when tapped.  Let the muffins cool in the pan for about 30 minutes, then transfer them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Recipe Notes

The recipe above is my revised recipe. I originally posted a Healthy Chocolate Banana Muffin recipe back in 2011 but felt like it could use some work on the texture.  Just in case you wanted to see the previous recipe and/or the changes I made, I’m providing the old recipe here:
  • 150g (1¼ cups) Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 42g (½ cup) Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
  • 48g (¼ cup) Sucanat
  • 1 tsp Double Acting Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Sea Salt
  • 4 Large Egg Whites
  • 240g (~2 large) Bananas, very ripe
  • 113g (½ cup) Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
