Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 2/3 Cup Wheat Flour - or white if that's what you have!
1 t Baking Soda
1/2 t Ground Cinnamon
1/2 t salt
2 Eggs
1 1/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Olive oil
3 1/2 Bananas, ripe & mashed, a pastry cutter works well for mashing!
2 T Greek Yogurt, Non-fat is fine
1 t Vanilla Extract
2/3 Cup Chocolate Chips
2/3 Cup, Nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium bowl mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, & salt. Beat sugar & eggs with a whisk until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add oil to egg mixture and beat. Add mashed bananas, yogurt, & vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Pour into muffin pans and bake for 25 minutes. Can be made into bread by spraying a loaf pan with Pam and baking for 45 minutes to an hour. I also sprinkle each muffin with cinnamon sugar before baking!

Background: I made these muffins to take to my kids in college. When I went to visit, upon meeting my son's dorm mates, they eagerly asked "are you the one who made those amazing muffins!". I also gave them to my girlfriends, they requested that I put the recipe on the blog as they loved them, too! So here it is! Enjoy!xo
