I’m not usually one to jump on food trends. And to be honest, most of the cottage cheese recipes I’ve seen haven’t really excited me all that much. And I’m actually one who adores cottage cheese. But I usually just eat mine with a spoon and some fruit. Simple, but delicious.

All that said, cottage cheese is so good for us. Personally, I feel that cottage cheese is a wonderful source of animal protein and probiotics. I’m a full believer, and I enjoy a serving every day.

So I started to wonder, how else could I bake with cottage cheese that felt exciting and new and actually made sense.

And then the obvious hit me – banana muffins – of course!

This is the process

Step 1 – blend the cottage cheese

I didn’t want the muffins to have curds of cottage cheese just floating throughout each muffin. So I threw the cottage cheese into the blender and blended until smooth.

This works really well in both the blender and food processor.

Then you can just add the remaining ingredients in, no extra bowls!

Step 2 – add the remaining wet ingredients 

Add the bananas, I use 3 over-ripe brown bananas, then creamy peanut butter, coconut oil, a tiny amount of maple to sweet things, eggs, and vanilla.

Blend this all up until the bananas are mostly pureed, a few chunks are OK.

Step 3 – the dry ingredients 

Now you can mix in the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix this until just combined, don’t over-mix!

Next add the chocolate chips, but mix these in with a spatula.

Step 4 – scoop and bake

Line a cupcake mold with paper liners. Then, I use an ice cream scoop or large cookie scoop to add the batter into molds. I always add a few more chocolate chips to the tops of the muffins. A little extra chocolate is most certainly a good idea.

Then bake for 20-25 minutes – and that’s it!

I love to serve a few of these while warm with a drizzle of peanut butter and sea salt on top. So yummy! That peanut butter + sea salt, with those melty chocolate chips, eaten while the muffing is still warm – beyond good. You will love it!

  1. I’m going to be annoying and ask: Can I substitute Greek yogurt for the cottage cheese, and butter for the coconut oil? Excited to make these but too lazy to go to the store LOL. Didn’t know if those were just preference or protein items, versus a change in flavor. Thanks!!

    1. Hey Kristin,
      Sure, I bet those would work nicely for you! Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xT

      1. I *did* try this recipe with my lazy substitutions and it. Was. Phenomenal. Thank you for another amazing recipe!!!

    Needed to use up some cottage cheese, decided to give these a try. They are delicious! I can’t have wheat, so I used 3/4c gluten-free flour blend and 3/4 cup oat flour, and they turned out great. I used a food processor, all-natural peanut butter, and mini chocolate chips, following the recipe to the letter (other than the gf subs). I should add that I thought they tasted better the next day. Will definitely make again!

    1. Hi Terri,
      Happy Sunday!! Thanks a bunch for giving this recipe a try, love to hear that it was enjoyed! xT

  3. Made them with half White Whole Wheat flour and half oatmeal ground to a flour, then added part mini chocolate chips and part large dark chocolate chips. Baked in mini muffin tin for 15 minutes. One pan was a silicon pan and didn’t discover they were way under cooked until they cooled, so I had to finish them in the microwave. Delicious muffins though!

  4. I used a mini muffin pan to bake mine, yield was 48 total. I baked 10 minutes at 350°. They are delicious and so fluffy! The perfect snack for the whole family, I know my little kids are going to love them! Thank you!

    1. Thanks so much Shelby!! Love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you and I appreciate you making it:) xT

    Responding in post to another comment.

    I made as a loaf. Baked at 325°F for about 55 mins and it was just cooked. Probably could’ve used 5 more mins in my opinion. Delicious

    1. Hey Steph,
      Amazing!! So glad to hear that this soup turned out well for you, thanks for making it and your feedback! xT

    Do you have any suggestions for making this recipe without the peanut butter? Just banana and chocolate chip muffins?

    1. Hi Bella,
      Could you use another nut butter like almond butter or sunflower seed butter? I think either of those would work well for you! I wouldn’t just omit it:) xx

    I love this recipe! I made a batch with the chocolate chips and a batch without the chocolate chips and maple syrup for my 18 month old! She loves them and I actually like them a lot too!

  11. These are so good! I’d like make it into bread vs muffins. What would the baking time/temp be if I were to try that? Thank you!!
