Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

These double chocolate banana muffins are delicious and surprise, they are a bit healthy too! The muffins are sweetened with pure maple syrup, coconut oil adds moisture and a smooth texture, and part of the flour is swapped to white whole wheat flour. And of course there is chocolate, which I deem a healthy food group! These muffins are perfect for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert.

Gather up your ingredients.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 12 count muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until somewhat smooth but still a few lumps.

Beat on medium speed for 30 seconds until ingredients are smooth and combined.

Reduce the speed to low and slowly add in the cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, white whole wheat flour, Kosher salt, and baking powder. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Fill the muffin tins up 3/4 of the way and bake for 15-17 minutes.
