Chocolate Banana Muffins
Ok I get the confusion, the title says muffins, the photos show cupcakes and donuts...
Hear me out!
These muffins are SO good, they can seriously pass as cupcakes by just tossing a little icing on top, which is what I did to spice them up for valentines day.
They're definitely not the worlds healthiest muffins and pack a solid dose of sugar, but we all need to live a little sometimes right?
So basically, if you're looking to get rid of those overripe bananas you have sitting around and are down for either a muffin thats delicious but maybe not the healthiest option out there, or a cupcake that is a little healthier than most, make these.
Anyway, heres the recipe which I know is what you're really here for.
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
4 very ripe bananas, mashed
½ cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
In a stand mixer or large bowl, mix butter with sugars until creamed together.
Add in eggs, banana, yogurt, and vanilla, mixing until fully combined.
Mix in flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda until even batter is formed.
Pour batter into greased muffin pan, filling to 3/4 full, and bake at 400° F for 15 to 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
