Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

December 27th, 2017 | Posted by Milana in Breakfast/Brunch | Recipes - (0 Comments)

Yields: 12 muffins

Serving size: 1 muffin

INGREDIENTS:

4 over-ripe bananas

1/3 cup melted coconut oil or unsalted butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking soda

Pinch of salt

1 cup white whole wheat flour

1/2 cup Unbleached all purpose flour

1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (plus more for the top)

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease your muffin liners with a quick spray of cooking oil. (Tip: I’ve used liners without this technique before but because the muffins are so moist half of the muffin tends to just stick to the liner and make a mess).

Peel your bananas and throw them in a big bowl with the melted oil and smash it all together with a fork or use a food processor. Keep blending until there’s no big chunks of banana left and the mixture is creamy and smooth.

Add the sugar, egg and vanilla and mix just until combined. Add salt and baking soda and stir. Pour in flour and mix. The mix doesn’t have to be perfectly blended, ┬ájust try and get rid of all the flecks of flour. Dump in chocolate chips mix them around a bit so every bite has some chocolatey goodness.

Divide into muffin tins using a quarter cup ice cream scoop. Bake until cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. Usually 18-20 min.

Banana Double Chocolate Cake

June 20th, 2016 | Posted by Milana in Dessert | Recipes - (0 Comments)


This is the most moist, chocolatey banana cake recipe I have ever made! I assure you it’s the easiest as well…..not to mention it doesn’t require any fat! Yes- I said NO FAT, which means no butter or oil. 

Recipe Yields: 9 or 12 servings depending on how you want to cut the cake. 

Note: for 9 servings, it’s 280 calories per square (with white chocolate drizzle); 260 calories without drizzle. 

For 12 servings, it’s 210 calories with white chocolate drizzle; 195 calories without the drizzle. 

INGREDIENTS:

3 medium ripe Bananas, mashed

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 large egg

1 cup white whole wheat flour (may use all purpose as well)

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 Tbsp Mini Dark or semi sweet chocolate chips-optional

1/4 cup white chocolate chips, melted for drizzle (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 350F. Have an 8×8 baking pan greased with cooking spray. 

In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, mix mashed bananas with brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Add egg, vanilla and applesauce and continue mixing on medium speed. In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and mix on low until just incorporated. Scraping the walls of the bowl in between. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared baking pan and spread evenly into all corners. Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips on top and bake for 25-35 min. Check the center with a toothpick to determine whether it’s completely baked through. Let cool for about 30 min before drizzling.
