Ingredients

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour plain white flour, oat flour or gluten free flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips I prefer dark but milk chocolate or semi-sweet are fine too if you prefer
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup plain fat free Greek yogurt vanilla works well too
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoon of coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 cup ripe bananas 2-3 bananas, mashed completely

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray and then dust each space with cocoa powder.
  • In a small bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder and chocolate chips.
  • Stir well to combine.
  • On a plate, mash the bananas well.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the egg and Greek yogurt.
  • Stir in the melted coconut oil (make sure it is not too hot. slightly cooled is best after melting), vanilla extract, brown sugar, and the mashed bananas.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix until just combined. (avoid over-mixing which makes the muffins denser)
  • Separate the batter evenly among the 12 muffin tins.
  • Bake for 18-23 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
  • Allow to cool for about 10 minutes and remove from the muffin tin. (gently cut around the edges with a butter knife to help them out)

Notes

For an even lower calorie muffin, substitute the coconut oil for an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.
Add a favorite nut, like 1/4 cup of pecans or walnuts.
Serve them warm by reheating for about 10 seconds in a microwave.
