Author: Martha | Simple Nourished Living
1/2cupwhite whole wheat flour
1/4cupunsweetened cocoa powder
1cupmashed bananas (about 2 bananas)
1/2cuppacked brown sugar
1/2cupminiature semisweet chocolate chips
Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Place paper liners in a 12 cup standard muffin pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well blended.
In another bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and oil until well blended.
Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir together just until blended. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
Divide the batter evenly between the lined muffin cups.
Bake in the center of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Take the pan from the oven and set the pan on a wire rack. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 2 or 3 minutes and then take them out and place them directly on the wire rack to cool completely.
These muffins turned out moist and delicious. The banana flavor really comes through. I think they would be great as cupcakes spread with a thin layer of frosting or sprinkled with confectioner's sugar.Next time I want to experiment with adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of coffee powder.Weight Watchers PointsPlus: *5Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints: *9
