  • 2 very ripe bananas, lightly mashed
  • 130 g light brown sugar (~ 3/4 cup)
  • 1 tbsp Greek yogurt, heaped
  • 1 egg
  • 170 g smooth peanut butter (~ 1/2 cup)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 235 g self-raising flour (~ 1 1/2 cups)
  • 50 g chocolate chunks or large chocolate chips (~ 1/3 cup)


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (Gas Mark 6 / 400°F).
  • Add the mashed bananas to a stand mixer, and add the sugar, yogurt, egg and peanut butter. Mix until smooth. Add the cinnamon, baking powder, flour and chocolate chips, and use a plastic spoon or spatula to fold the mixture together until just combined.
  • Grease a 12-cup muffin tray, and distribute the mixture between the cups, filling each nearly to the top. Dot a few more chocolate chips on top of each, if you want the chocolate chips to be particularly visible in the finished muffins.
  • Bake the muffins for around 10 minutes, then turn the oven down to 180°C (Gas Mark 4 / 350°F). Cook for a further 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
