Banana Yogurt Bran Muffins

Banana Yogurt Bran Muffins – Moist Banana Muffins with Greek yogurt, and bran cereal. Plus chocolate chips, because everyday should start with chocolate.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day.  My husband didn’t have to work yesterday, so we enjoyed a great 3 day weekend as a family.  On Saturday we drove up into the mountains and did some hiking.  We hiked to the top of a mountain (Twin Sisters), which was about 2000 feet of elevation gain and 7.5 miles round trip.  My 7 year old did amazing!  He didn’t complain once!  Amazing what bribing them with ice cream will do 🙂  Sunday we got to have a barbeque with some friends, and Monday we relaxed.  I couldn’t have asked for much more.

I made these banana yogurt bran muffins during teacher appreciation week, and sent them to school.  I kept a couple here for us, and they disappeared very quickly.  I wasn’t sure how the bran cereal would do in a muffin, but it just disappeared and left great flavor.  I used Raisin Bran, because that is all I had, which just added a few more raisins to the mix.  I did mix in a few chocolate chips as well.  Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself!

I might have to mix up another batch of these banana yogurt bran muffins this week for our pending road trip.  As soon as school is out we are getting in the car and headed to see family in Wisconsin.  Snacks will definitely be needed on the drive. Or stashed in the freezer for when we get back!

Moist Banana Muffins with Greek yogurt, and bran cereal.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 cup bran cereal, (I used Raisin Bran)
  • 1 cup mashed bananas, (about 3)
  • 3/4 cup Greek vanilla yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins, (chopped nuts or chocolate chips would work well too)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a 12 cup muffin tin with non stick spray or liners.
  2. Combine bran cereal, bananas and yogurt. Let stand for a few minutes for the cereal to soften. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and raisins. Set aside.
  3. Add eggs, brown sugar, and the canola oil to the bran mixture. Pour bran mixture into the flour, and stir until just combined. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a tester comes out clean. Cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Sounds like you had a nice weekend. I love these muffins! Sometimes I get a craving for raisin bran, but we never finish the whole box before they get stale. This would be a great way to use up the rest!
