Ingredients

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 2/3 cup milk, any variety (I used almond)
  • 1 5.3-oz container Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Add flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, and ground nutmeg to a bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Add bananas, milk, yogurt, maple syrup, and eggs to a separate bowl and mix until light and creamy.
  • Add dry ingredients to the bowl with the wet and mix until just combined.
  • Stir in chia seeds.
  • Divide muffin batter equally between the twelve muffin cups and bake for 18-21 minutes, or until the tops spring back when lightly pressed and a tester inserted into the tallest part of the muffin comes out clean. Let muffins cool in the tin for 10 minutes, and then remove to cool completely on a wire rack.

Notes

5.3 oz of Greek yogurt is roughly equivalent to 1/2 cup.
