Chocolate Banana Muffins

My kids and I decided to create some muffins together for breakfast. I had two VERY ripe bananas to use up and I thought that instead of regular banana muffins we would try chocolate banana muffins. They were super easy to make, especially since I had two helpers. They turned out moist and so delicious – both of my kids gobbled them up quickly. I am looking forward to trying different variations of this tasty muffin.

  • 1 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup of canola oil
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 egg

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat a muffin pan with cooking spray. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl.

Combine the oil, sugars, egg, and mashed banana and mix until creamy. Slowly add the flour mixture into the egg mixture and stir until just combined.

Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin pan.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a tester inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Cool the muffins on a rack. Enjoy.

    I,ve always wanted to make a chocolate muffin that was low in fat and have whole wheat. I baked these and they turned out grrreat! I used brown sugar instead of white and cut it down to 3/4c. My kids luv them and did not notice that there was whole wheat in them! I'll be making these more often than brownies from now on. Thanks, for sharing your recipe!:-)

    Made these months ago and my little sister still asks for them. :) So I’m making them again tomorrow!

    They were also so good that my dog jumped on the table and ate two!
