Something good to eat: Chocolate Banana Muffins

Do you love chocolate? Need something tasty and real to fill those chocolate cravings? I made up this recipe and it's not too bad.

Super Simple Chocolate Banana Muffins

3 ripe bananas (mashed)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white flour
1/4 cup cocoa (could use more or none at all)
1/2 cup sugar
4 T applesauce
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
chocolate chips/nuts to taste

Mix it all together. Throw batter in the greased muffin tin (or large loaf pan). Pam works great. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes. Loaf will take longer.

Tip #1: Double the recipe. Scoop the first pan of muffins with no cocoa. Add the cocoa and chocolate chips to make your second pan.

Tip #2: Do NOT overcook. They get hard and dry.

Tip #3: They freeze REALLY well.

Tip #4: I think a muffin works out to about 3 points in Weight Watchers depending on how much chocolate chips and/or nuts are added.

Tip #5: A 1/4 tsp of salt doesn't hurt them at all.

Tip #6: See comments for adding zucchini.


  1. They're not bad even if you *oops* use corn flour instead of whole wheat!

  2. Added 2 cups of finely shredded zucchini to them today. Double the recipe, add the 2 c zucchini and you get 36 medium sized muffins!
