Healthy Chocolate Banana Muffins
Serves: 16 muffins
You'd never guess these moist, chocolaty muffins are refined sugar free and full of healthy whole grains. Perfect for a healthy breakfast on the go!
  • 1¼ cup bran cereal
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 overripe bananas
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  1. Combine cereal and milk in a large bowl and let for 4-5 minutes until soft.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffins pans with 16-18 liners. I love the silicone cupcake liners.
  3. Mash the bananas with a fork and then add to the cereal mixture. Add in egg, applesauce and honey and whisk.
  4. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop batter into prepared liners. Fill each about ⅔ full.
  6. Bake at 250 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean or mostly clean. Do not over-bake.
  7. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze.
