Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to eat chocolate for breakfast?

These greek yogurt chocolate banana muffins are my perfect breakfast: taste like a dessert while secretly healthy and filled with protein and healthy fats.

These are just as delicious as another favorite of ours – greek yogurt chocolate chip muffins

One of my favorite muffin recipes is my skinny pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.

I based this recipe loosely off of those, changing a few ingredients to adapt for the cacao powder and obviously no pumpkin was used.

The result? Melt in your mouth moist chocolate chunk muffins that are sweet (but not too sweet) and perfect for breakfast on the go.

You can use either chocolate chips or chunks for this recipe, but I personally like the dark chocolate chunk flavor and went with those.

Semisweet would also be delicious, but would make these a touch more sweeter.

The tops almost look like brownies and they smell like a chocolate factory while they bake.

In place of unhealthy oils, we are using a mixture of mashed banana, greek yogurt, and coconut oil to get that soft and light texture.

I love love love using greek yogurt in muffins because 1) you don’t taste it at all 2) it makes the muffins so moist and 3) it adds healthy protein.

A great swap for oil if you are baking muffins or breads!

Robbie and I both had these for breakfast this morning and they really hit the spot.

I prefer mine warmed up (<– helloo melted chocolate), but Robbie liked his straight out of the fridge.

Hi! I have an allergy to all grains and nuts. What flour can you recommend to substitute the wheat flour with?

I have not tried it myself, but I've heart good things about cassava flour, I think that might work!
