Chocolate Banana Mini Muffins

This is a cute little treat for birthday parties or a fun snack. I think these have a bit more moisture than similar recipes I've tried that use applesauce in place of oil. Regular Pillsbury Devil's food cake mix used here (not sugar free). 


Recipe makes 48 mini cupcakes. 1 mini cake per serving. WW SmartPoints and nutrition values exclude the additional banana slices shown in the photo (for topping).

Yield/Servings: 48 Serving Size: 1 mini cake Total Cook/Prep time: 30 minutes


  • 1 box Pillsbury Devil's food cake mix
  • 1 small container (6 oz) non-fat greek yogurt
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 oz container Lite cool whip (1 - 2 tsp distributed on top of each cupcake)
  • 48 banana slices (optional)


Preheat oven to 350

Spray 2 mini cupcake tins (sets of 24 cavities) with cooking spray, or use small paper liners

Crush or mash the bananas in a bowl

Mix the bananas, cake mix, yogurt, and water in a bowl

Distribute the cake mix into the cupcake sections (filling each cavity 3/4 full)

Bake for about 15 minutes

Allow cupcakes to cool, then add 1 - 2 teaspoons of whipped topping and/or a sliced banana
