Jumbo Chocolate Banana Muffins

If you like the banana chocolate combo, here’s another muffin recipe for you. I made half a batch of these Chocolate Banana Muffins this afternoon and Fuzz’s friends gave them a thumbs up. You can make 6 (as written) or halve the recipe and make 3. If you want to make regular size muffins, use regular muffin tins and check at 18 minutes. Also, I think white whole wheat flour would work very well here.

    These sound better to me than the hairy dog muffins! 😉
    And I have 9, count them, NINE really ripe bananas sitting on the counter. Sometimes I stock up because I usually eat a banana a day and the boys go and eat them all. Then times like now, I buy a bunch (a couple bunches!) and they end up not eating any! What’s a girl to do? Muffins!!! I was just thinking of chocolate/banana muffins today–after I saw your last post. Man, I wish the kitchen was clean right now. Sigh.

    Applesauce would probably work too.

    Another thing I want to try is reverting back to the original recipe but swapping out 1 cup milk for 1 cup prepared chocolate pudding.

    I just made these, and they are SO good. I could barely wait for them to get out of the oven before trying one. I made them are standard size muffins and got 18 of them. They are great!!!!

    Lovely, these taste quite good! I used gluten-free flour, canola oil (5 tbsp) and 1.25 cups yogurt in place of milk. Thank you for the recipe!
