Double Chocolate Banana Applesauce Muffins
Serves: 12
  • 2 large very ripe bananas
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup applesauce (I used raspberry flavoured)
  • ⅓ cup coconut milk, any milk will do
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • ⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a 12 cup muffin tin lined with paper cups.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mash bananas well and add sugars, applesauce, milk, vinegar and yogurt. Blend well.
  3. In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix just until incorporated. Do not over mix.
  4. Add in half a cup of the chocolate chips and mix again just until the chips are distributed evenly. Using an ice cream scoop, divide batter into 12 muffin cups equally. Top with remaining chocolate chips.
  5. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until done when tested with a toothpick. Serve either warm or at room temperature.
