  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 cup mashed bananas about 3 medium
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate chunks or chips


  • Line a 12 cavity muffin tin with muffin liners (or spray with non stick spray). Preheat the oven to 360°F.
  • Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  • In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together the oil, mashed bananas, sugar, egg, milk and vanilla extract. Pour these wet ingredients into the bowl with the flour mix and fold together with a spatula until just combined. A few lumps are OKI!
  • Fold in the chocolate chips. Evenly distribute the batter between the prepared muffin cups. (There are about 3 tablespoons of batter per muffin.)
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove onto a cooling rack to cool completely.


Any kind of mild oil works well in these muffins. Canola or melted coconut oil are our favorites. Melted butter works, too!
