Dark Chocolate Banana Muffins

Today was supposed to be a Playdate day, but after I felt yesterday I cancelled.. Kicking myself in the butt as I don’t have the cold that I thought I was coming down with and would have been fine to host the event.. I was planning to make muffins for the playdate, so I am making them anyway.. What takes better then a muffin full of bananas and chocolate.. And get this they are made with applesauce instead of butter, so adding a little more chocolate then you normally would doesn’t sound so bad.. This recipe came from a blog called “little LADIES WHO LUNCH”. Thanks for this lovely recipe.. The only changes that I made was using all white flour, no whole wheat.. Enjoy 🙂

~Ingredients 

1/2 cup sugar (use 3/4 cup if you aren’t using the dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup apple sauce
2 eggs(we used Egg Beaters and the result was fantastic on day 1.  The next the texture was slightly off but still more than acceptable)
1 Tbsp. vanilla
4 very ripe bananas, smashed, but still chunky
3 Tsp. baking powder
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour

~Method 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Pour the sugar and apple sauce in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix.
  4. Add the smashed bananas.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder and flour and mix well.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients plus optional dark chocolate chips or walnuts and mix.
  7. Pour the batter into cupcake liners.
  8. Bake for 35 minutes, then check until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
