Banana Muffin (with Yogurt)



Introduction

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together banana, sugar, egg and vanilla. Stir in the yogurt (I've used applesauce when out of plain yogurt as well). Stir banana mixture into flour until just combined. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool before serving.

    Very Good!! I used the apple sauce instead of yogurt and I freeze overripe bananas and use them for more flavor. - 11/11/09

    Nice Flavor!
    Baking time was MUCH longer than advised in the recipe. I have a convection oven. It should have been the same or less.
    They stick to paper cups. There's not enough fat in the muffins to allow them to release from the paper. I guess that's a good thing, but... - 8/27/09

  • Oh my goodness these are soooooo good! They are so light and spongy. I doubled the recipe and added cinnamon and used only 2 teaspoons of baking powder and used strawberry yogurt and they turned out so well. - 4/23/14

  • Really yummy - I love using yogurt in place of oil or butter. I have parchment paper liners that work really well for muffins that have very little fat, and I never have a problem with anything sticking to them. - 2/13/14

  • These muffins were delicious, filling, and guilt free! I added 2 teaspoons of baking powder like one reviewer said, used whole wheat flour, and some cinnamon to the recipe and it turned out amazing. I also used a jumbo muffin tin so I got 5 big muffins total. 1 1/2 muffins made me full! - 8/31/13

  • Sooo good, just like my mom's banana bread with a lot less calories! I used Splenda instead of sugar and added 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts - fantastic and still only 90 calories! I greased the muffin tin with Pam (don't use liners, they will stick) and they popped right out. - 2/4/13

  • Need to cut the baking powder down to 2 Tsp *OR* do what I do and add a lot of spices: 1 Tsp of Pumpkin Pie spice cuts the bitterness. Really worth trying for a super-low cal muffin. I use 1/2 C. minute oats and 1/2 C. flour for a heartier texture. - 9/24/12

  • We doubled the recipe, in order to have more and slightly larger muffins. Probably some of the best banana muffins we have ever made and the great thing is, they are oily, but incredibly delicious. - 6/30/12

  • There a slight bitterness to the muffins though, I am guessing it's from the Baking powder or the baking soda so I'll try to use less next time, other than that they were amazing and I hope they freeze well because I made a whole patch and I live alone :D. A definite keeper - 4/28/12

  • Made these as per the recipe - excellent, but did take longer to bake than the directions stated. Next time I will try riper bananas as someone else suggested, and maybe a hotter oven. Thanks for posting the recipe :D - 4/2/12

  • These were delicious. I added oats, flax seeds, and craisins to pack in some more nutrients and my toddler surprisingly liked them! Tricky mommy ;) My only confusion was that it yielded 12 mini-muffins and I expected it to yield more, but I did fill the muffin cups 3/4 of the way. Still delicious! - 2/23/12
