Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Double chocolate, double yum! These muffins are a great way to use up any stray bananas that may be languishing in the fruit bowl. For a fun variation, you can switch out the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips!

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins
From Smitten Kitchen

3 very ripe bananas
½ cup butter, melted
¾ cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
½ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp table salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375⁰F. Line a muffin pan with baking cups (usually for about 15 muffins).

Mash bananas in the bottom of a large bowl. Stir in the melted butter, then add the brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt into the wet ingredients. (Don’t skip this step—it’s important to get all of the lumps out of the cocoa powder). Mix together just until there are no dry streaks, then stir in chocolate chips.

Fill cups about ¾ full, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
