I know that chocolate and peanut butter is the age old flavor match up, but let’s not be so quick to leave out banana as a flavor combo with chocolate. I had a couple bananas that didn’t quite make it into my daily oat ball and decided they were going to start turning black on me.
They thought they were being clever but little did they know I had something planned for them! Now, I am not a huge fan of Greek yogurt but I cannot deny that it is amazing to bake with. It makes your product so damn moist, and helps add a nice protein punch. With the right combination of flavors you can have yourself a protein packed delicious baked good!
Now, when I think of muffins I instantly go to a Banana Nut Muffin. Now I decided to leave the nuts off this time to save some fat, even though I could of put less chips in 😀 and to be honest I am not a huge nut in my food fan. None the less I still love that flavor as a muffin for some odd reason. Anyway today I decided to whip up some Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins, Lets get started!

- Food Processor
