Chocolate Banana Muffins
My sister-in-law came and spent the other day with us. She spent time playing with the cutest little boy in the world and she made us some tasty muffins for dessert. These muffins are sweet from the three bananas and are chocolatey and rich and were the perfect way to end our evening!
This recipe makes 12-18 muffins.
3 large bananas
3/4 C sugar
1 large egg
1/3 C unsweetened applesauce
1/2 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 C mini chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375.
Line muffin tins with paper liners or a light layer of cooking spray.
Mash the bananas in a large bowl.
Mix in the sugar, egg, and applesauce.
Combine the flours, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in another bowl.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until they are just moistened.
Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
Evenly divide the batter among the muffin tins - the tins should be about 3/4 of the way full.
Bake them for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
Remove the muffins from the oven and the pan and let them cool on a wire rack.
Save any uneaten muffins in an airtight container or bag.
