Eggless Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffin – Shack Saturdays

Hola! Hope you all are doing well and the weekend’s going great so far! Many of our readers requested for the eggless version of the banana muffins I posted last time. I tried substituting egg with milk and plain yogurt for this one and the result was as good as the ones with egg. I used Olive Oil instead of butter to make them healthier. So, here’s the recipe of these delectable Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins for you all.

Preparation Time 10-15 minutes
Baking Time 15-20 minutes
Makes 6 Muffins
Main Ingredients Plain Flour (Maida), Banana & Chocolate Chips
Main Equipment Oven
Course Breakfast/Dessert
Level Of Cooking Easy


  • Self-raising Flour or Plain Flour (Maida)  3/4 cup
  • Banana  1 big
  • Chocolate Chips  1/4th cup
  • Olive Oil (alternative, cooking oil) 1/2 cup
  • White Granulated Sugar  1/4 cup
  • Plain Yogurt  2 tablespoons
  • Milk  3 teaspoons
  • Baking Soda  1/4 teaspoon
  • Baking Powder  1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt  a pinch
  • Cinnamon Powder  1/4 teaspoon
  • Vanilla or Banana Essence  1/2 teaspoon


Step 1
Line a muffin tin/tray with muffin liners and set aside.

Step 2
In a large bowl, add the banana and mash it. Add olive oil and vanilla/banana essence and mix it. Now add the plain yogurt/curd, milk and sugar and mix until well incorporated. eggless-banana-and-chocolate-chip-muffin-collage1-ics
Step 3
Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder and salt and whisk until all combined.

Step 4
Preheat the oven. Drop the batter with a spoon or ice cream scoop on the muffin liners in the tin/tray until 3/4th full (Add a few chocolate chips after 1/4th full, then add the remaining batter). Bake at 200 degrees C/400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. (After 15 minutes, check if the muffins are done by inserting a toothpick or sharp knife in any muffin and if it comes out clean then it’s done. Otherwise, bake for another 5-7 minutes.)eggless-banana-and-chocolate-chip-muffins-collage2-ics

These Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins are made in olive oil which makes them a healthy breakfast option. A superb snack or tiffin box item for your kids as well.
