Serves: 12 muffins
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat white flour*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 medium)
  • ½ cup peanut butter, melted*
  • ½ cup low fat milk
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chunks
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a standard muffin pan with paper liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, vigorously whisk the sugars, oil, egg, and egg yolk until frothy, about 1 minute. Whisk in the mashed bananas, peanut butter, milk, yogurt, and vanilla until well incorporated. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  4. Scoop the batter evenly into the paper liners. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 18-22 minutes, checking for doneness after 18 minutes. The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack, then remove from the pan and allow to cool completely or serve warm. Enjoy!
Notes
The whole wheat white flour may be substituted for an equal amount of all purpose or regular whole wheat flour.
*Melt the peanut butter in a small bowl in the microwave for about 40 seconds to 1 minute when you start measuring your ingredients and allow to cool slightly before adding to the egg mixture.
Normally I use natural peanut butter with oil on top, but for baking, I use no-stir natural peanut butter.
I used chocolate chunks because I had them, but these are also great with regular or mini sized chocolate chips!
