This week I chose to do a combination of pumpkin, banana & dark chocolate. Which by the way is the perfect transition into my next “muffin loving” explanation.
Find the full recipe at the bottom of the post.
Chocolate Chip-Banana Bread Whole Grain Muffins
- 1 cup whole wheat white flour
- 1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- pinch of cloves or all spice (optional)
- 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 large + 1 egg white beaten
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 2 medium mashed very ripe bananas (heading towards very brown)
- 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (plus a small extra handful for topping)
- Freshly grated nutmeg
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.
- Using a large fork or masher, mash bananas until smooth.
- Combine first seven ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
- In a smaller bowl whisk together egg, milk, pumpkin vanilla & bananas.
- Pour in the dry ingredients and carefully fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
- Stir everything together, but do not over-mix. (Over-mixing muffins can create tougher batter and them to bake unevenly.)
- Spoon the batter three quarters way up into muffin tin. (I like to use an ice-cream scooper or ladle to create uniform muffins.)
- Sprinkle all with additional chips and grate nutmeg over the top.
- Bake muffins for 20-22 minutes or until a fork inserted into the middle of the muffin comes out clean. Let cool and ENJOY!!!
