Banana (greek yogurt) muffins

A couple of months ago I made a yummy banana bread.  It was so good, it was like cake.  I gave the credit to an accidentally purchased pint of Greek vanilla yogurt.  I liked the bread/cake so much that I still use the recipe.  I made muffins.  Muffins are perfect for summertime, easy to pack in picnic lunches, and my kids love to snack. If they don't eat all the muffins for breakfast they can grab one for a late morning snack.  When I saw that Jenn's weekly Bon Appetite blog carnival was muffins I got so excited to post this!

What you will need:

1/4 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
3 very ripe bananas, mashed {mine were almost brown}
1 {16oz} container of Greek vanilla yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
2tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cups of flour

What to do:

Cream butter and sugar.
Mix in eggs and mashed bananas.
Add yogurt, vanilla and cinnamon.
Add baking soda and flour.
Stir like crazy.

Pour into muffin tins about 3/4 full with or without liners.
Sometimes I do paper muffin cups and sometimes I don't. 
When I am making muffins for my kids in the morning I skip the
cups, because they devour them so fast.  Hayden even ate the paper once.

Bake @ 300 for 1 hour and 5 minutes

Happy Monday everyone...I hope you all had a great Father's Day!!

I am going to have to try this. I bought some Greek yogurt the other day and it did NOT taste good on it's own. I hated to waste it, so I'm glad you shared this recipe:)
