Skinny Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Muffins + Oh My Yog! Review

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Who says you can’t have delicious, chocolatey muffins and feel good about eating them?

For this muffin recipe, I mixed in half whole wheat flour and used honey to boost the sweetness. I also added one of my new favorite ingredients – Stonyfield’s Viva la Vanilla Petite Crème!

The Petite Crème helped keep the muffins moist, since whole wheat flour can make baked goods a bit dense. It also added a nice vanilla bean aroma throughout.

I had a gigantic bag of Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet baking chips that I impulse bought at a wholesale club in my kitchen, and I love them, so that’s what I used here. I really like that they’re larger than regular chips and make little pools of dark chocolate. Mmmm…

These muffins turned out really well! I had a tough time getting them out of the muffin liners though, so next time I think I’ll grease the muffin tin really well instead.

Speaking of new Stonyfield goodness, allow me to introduce you to my new snack time BFF: Oh My Yog!

Stonyfield Oh My Yog!

Oh My Yog! is a whole milk yogurt with a layer of cream on top, a honey infused center and a thick, jammy fruit layer on the bottom. I wasn’t expecting it to be AS good as it was – holy YUM!!

They’re beautifully smooth and creamy, and I seriously hid them in my refrigerator so I wouldn’t have to share. Shhh…

So far, I’ve tried the Wild Quebec Blueberry and Apple Cinnamon combos, and I’m absolutely in love. I can’t wait to try out the others, too (Gingered Pear, Orange Cranberry, Madagascar Vanilla Bean and Pacific Coast Strawberry).

    These are AMAZING! I used regular Greek vanilla yogurt the first time and they were so yummy! The next time (because my three year old and I devoured these), I accidentally bought banana cream yogurt instead of vanilla. Still good but vanilla was better. We added blueberries too because my daughter is obsessed with blueberries right now. I love that there is no sugar! So good!!

      I’m so glad these were such a bit for you and your kiddo!! Blueberries sound like a perfect addition – I like your daughter’s style!
