If you want to try a unique muffin recipe, this is it. This Banana and Yoghurt Muffin recipe is a great way to get more dairy into your kids, and it’s yummy too!

You might think that yoghurt wouldn’t work in a muffin, but it really does. The yoghurt gives the muffins a nice tangy taste and they end up very creamy. What can I say? They’re delicious!

I recommend baking a few batches and freezing them for your kid’s lunch boxes. Believe me, it’s a great help having frozen muffins on hand ready to go.

I often put some yogurt in muffins, or picklets, it keeps them so moist! And it’s great if I have a little kiddy tub of it that needs to be used! Also try using a little sour cream in baking 🙂

Just made these with wholemeal flower and a bit of stevia instead of sugar. (it’s what I had!) They are perfect:) Some for me and some for my freezer!

Annette Burns, no muffins, but salmon might work really nicely in the herb and cheese scones. remove the bacon and replace with salmon https://theorganisedhousewife.com.au/recipes/herb-and-cheese-scones/

Do you think these would work without the egg? Our DS has an egg allergy and I have made cakes before that subsitute the egg for yoghurt, as this already has yoghurt I thought maybe I could just leave out the egg 🙂

I had 3 bananas leftover and thought what am I going to make with them? Found this site and these muffins are cooking away in my oven for the kids as they’ll be home in 20 minutes.. Sound yum and even I can’t wait to try one.. 😀

Banana yoghurt muffins

Can I use any other oil? I have vegetable, rice bran, sunflower and olive oil. Don’t really want to buy canola if I can use what I already have.

Hello,
I’ve just made these and they are yummy…moist and delicious.
I used coconut oil instead of canola oil, it gave a slight coconut flavour which I liked.
I was wondering if you could replace some of the SR flour with whole wheat flour and how much you would put?
Thanks for the recipe 🙂

Katrina - The Organised Housewife August 11, 2016 - 10:49 AM

That sounds delicious Maroula using the coconut oil, I might try that too. Great idea to use wholemeal SR Flour, I would use the same amount as recommended for the normal SR Flour.
