Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Place paper liners in a 12 cup standard muffin pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a potato masher or electric mixer.
Beat in the oil, and then the eggs and sugar.
In another bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda. Add this to the banana mixture and stir just until combined.
Divide the batter evenly between the lined muffin cups.
Bake in the center of the oven for 15 to 20 minutes minutes, until dark, rounded and set.
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.Serving size: 1 muffinClick here to see your WW PersonalPoints for this recipe and track it in the WW app or site.7*SmartPoints (Green plan)6*SmartPoints (Blue plan)6*SmartPoints (Purple plan)5*PointsPlus (Old plan)
