Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Category: Breakfast
Best for: Baking Breakfast
Serves: 15 large muffins

A good banana muffin is a staple at our house. My kids are obsessed with store-bought banana chocolate chip muffins, but the problem is they have about a million ingredients. (They also have a ridiculously long shelf life… that can’t be a good sign!) This recipe has replaced the buying of those muffins! The kids love them,  and I love the ingredients.  Banana with the addition of chocolate? Well, that’s a no-brainer! These muffins are made with five bananas, our grass-fed heritage yogurt and butter, and some pumpkin pie spice, which gives them just the right flavour.

As a bonus, they freeze well! Our freezer is stocked with containers of muffins. Simply heat them in the microwave for 30 – 45 seconds.  Easy peasy homemade snacks anytime!


Overly ripe bananas

1/3 cup

Donia Farms Grass Fed Yogurt (natural or vanilla)




1/4 cup

Donia Farms Unsalted Butter (melted and cooled)

1/4 cup

White sugar

1/3 cup

Brown sugar

2 1/4 cups

All-purpose flour

1 tsp

Baking soda

1 Tbsp

Baking powder

1 1/2 tsp

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp

Pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp


6 oz

Semisweet chocolate (roughly chopped)

  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 muffin tins with 6 muffin liners each, evenly spaced. (See Note below**)
  2. Mash the bananas with fork or a handheld/stand mixer. Add in yogurt, eggs, butter, vanilla and both sugars. Beat until well combined.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in Chocolate chunks, reserving some for topping.
  5. Fill muffin liners full and top with additional chocolate chunks. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes or until tooth pick coms out clean.
  6. **Note, you do not have to use two tins but this will ensure your muffins tops do not touch. We like a larger muffin, but you can make your muffins smaller by filling the liners 3/4 full and use one full tin. This will make approximately 18 – 20 muffins.
