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. The banana flavor is not super strong but you can definitely taste it. These are mainly chocolate muffins with banana flavor.
Texas Size Chocolate Banana Muffins
The recipe calls for a jumbo size muffin pan (or Texas size!). If you want to make regular size muffins, use regular muffin tins and check at 18 minutes. Keep in mind you will probably get about 12 if you make them regular size. These were jumbo. Also, I think white whole wheat flour would work very well here.
Natural or Dutch Cocoa Powder
I didn't specify whether to use natural or Dutch process cocoa powder because either kind will work.
