Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 39 minutes
Servings: 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup banana mashed (about 1 medium)
  • 1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons nonfat milk
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed berries or strawberries - fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin liners and set aside.
  • Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the butter, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the mashed banana and Greek yogurt stirring until no large lumps remain. Stir in the maple syrup.
  • Alternate between adding the flour mixture and the milk to the egg mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture, and stirring until just incorporated (for best results add the flour mixture in 3 equal parts).
  • Gently fold in the berries and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the chocolate chips.
  • Divide the batter between the muffin cups and press the remaining chocolate chips into the tops of the muffins.
  • Bake for 24-27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool the muffins in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling wrack.

Notes
