Chocolate Banana Muffins


Saturdays at our house are usually pancake/waffle day but sometimes I just need to mix it up a little. And I NEEDED chocolate today (ok, I need Chocolate everyday!) But, at least this way, I could disguise it as breakfast!  These muffins are moist and delicious and who doesn't love banana and chocolate!

Chocolate Banana Muffins
(12 muffins)

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
3 very ripe bananas, pureed (about 1 1/2 cups)
6 T butter, melted and cooled
2 eggs
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease or line a muffin pan and set aside. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.  In a medium bowl whisk together bananas, eggs, yogurt, butter and vanilla.  Mix the wet mixture into the dry by gently folding it with a rubber spatula.  Add chocolate chips, being careful to NOT over mix the batter.  Fill the muffin cups until almost full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, be careful to not over bake.  They are done when a toothpick comes out with some moist crumbs on it.  Cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
