Double Chocolate Banana Muffins
Double Chocolate Banana Muffins
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 20-22 muffins
  • 1 ½ c. white whole-wheat flour
  • ½ c. all-purpose flour
  • ½ c. old-fashioned oats
  • ½ c. baking cocoa
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flax seed
  • ⅔ c. sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cocoa chili blend (McCormick) (optional)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ c. coconut oil
  • ⅔ c. Greek yogurt
  • ½ c. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 c. dark chocolate chips
  • Topping:
  • 2 tsp. turbinado sugar
  • ½ tsp. cocoa chili blend
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Prepare muffins tins by spraying them with non-stick pan spray. You may also use paper liners, but I found the muffins would stick to the liners at first. They are easier to remove the second day.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all dry ingredients except the turbinado sugar and cocoa chili blend used for the topping.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the eggs, coconut oil, Greek yogurt, milk, vanilla, and mashed bananas. (I saw a hint the other day on how to easily mash bananas – use a plate instead of bowl and mash them on the plate. I tried it and it worked great!) Mix these ingredients together using an electric mixer to evenly distribute the coconut oil. If it’s soft enough you may be able to do this by hand.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into the well. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet with a spatula or wooden spoon just until moistened. There should still be a few lumps. Do not overmix.
  5. Gently fold in the chocolate chips using the minimum amount of strokes possible to spread them throughout the batter.
  6. Mix together the turbinado sugar and cocoa chili blend in a small bowl.
  7. Fill prepared muffin cups about ⅔ full with batter. Sprinkle the sugar-cocoa mix evenly on top of each muffin and bake immediately at 400°F for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, pop the muffins out of the muffin tins, and cool on a wire rack.
