Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Prepare two 12-cup muffin pans, 18 cups lined with paper liners.

Step 2

In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, butter and vanilla until blended and crumbly. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 3

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Step 4

In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, egg, bananas and oil until well blended. Whisk in yogurt until blended.

Step 5

Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended. Gently fold in walnuts and chocolate.

Step 6

Divide batter equally among prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with topping.

Step 7

Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then transfer to the rack to cool.
