Serves: 30
Little bites of goodness
  • 1¾ c all-purpose flour
  • ½ c sugar
  • ¼ c brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ c canola oil
  • ½ c applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ c yogurt
  • 2-3 very ripe bananas, smashed
  • ½ c chocolate peanut butter swirl chips
  • ½ c white chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Into large bowl, sift flour, sugars, baking powder, soda, salt & cinnamon.
  3. In medium bowl thoroughly combine egg, oil, applesauce, yogurt & vanilla.
  4. Stir into dry ingredients just to moisten.
  5. Mash bananas and lightly fold into batter along with chocolate chips. This is a thick and lumpy muffin batter.
  6. Spray mini muffin cups with non-stick spray, fill ⅔ full of batter.
  7. Bake for 12-16 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Don't over bake! Remove from muffin tins and cool on wire racks.
  8. Makes about 4-5 dozen mini muffins depending on pan size.

Use the Pampered Chef mini scoop to fill the cups, perfect size!

If using a dark pan then oven temperature should be lowered to 325.

Can substitute ½ - ¾ cup of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour.

These are even better if you use a banana cream yogurt instead of plain.

Could substitute sour cream or buttermilk for the yogurt if desired.

Use any combination of chocolate, peanut butter and /or white chocolate chips to make 1 cup total.

Can leave plain or drizzle with icing once they are completely cool (if they make it that far).
