Moist Banana Muffins with 1 Small Overripe Banana and Leftover Yogurt
Do you have that one or two over-ripened bananas in your pantry which are not going to see the daylight in a day or two? And also some yogurt/curd in your refrigerator which has become sour?
I came up with this delicious muffin recipe when i was craving something lightly sweet and reached out to my dear refrigerator. Nope! Nothing sweet inside! I could just see some yogurt lying around. I hate when this happens! We all do right! We all love our refrigerator packed with food especially cakes or desserts 😉 which we can grab anytime! Yay!
I thought about some healthy eating and reached out to my fruit basket. Nope! Nothing but a black overripe banana that I could not eat as is. I did not want to throw it away as I do not believe in throwing food in the dustbin.

Pro Ingredient Tips for Flavorful Banana Yogurt Muffins
These banana muffins are not overly sweet. You can increase the sugar to make them more sweet.
Whether you make these with leftover or freshly set yogurt, these will taste just the best.
Over-ripe Banana gives you the extra sweetness because of which you can afford putting less sugar. You can go ahead and use regular yellow bananas but you will require more sugar then. Just taste the batter before you fill the muffin liners. This recipe does not use eggs and is perfectly safe to lick before you bake! 😀
You could use banana flavored yogurt instead of regular yogurt for that extra banana punch! If you are a crazy banana lover, use Banana extract instead of Vanilla! Devour to your heart’s content!
