Chocolate Banana Muffins

A few weeks ago our good friends brought over some very tasty muffins!  She modified the recipe to make them healthier and they were soooo good!  She was kind enough to give me the original recipe with her healthy modifications in parenthesis to the side of each ingredient!  Who wouldn't love a chocolatey banana muffin for breakfast???  Especially if you can get you're whole wheat and flaxseed in there!;)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
The breakdown:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (whole wheat flour)
1 cup granulated sugar (evaporated cane juice)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 medium ripe bananas
1/3 cup vegetable oil (grape seed oil)
1 egg
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
(1-2 tablespoons flaxseed)

In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients.  In a small bowl, combine bananas, oil and egg.  Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients in the large bowl just until combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Fill greased or paper lined muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes!  Recipe makes about 1-2 dozen.

I just made the whole wheat flour/grapeseed oil/flaxseed version of these with raw sugar instead of the cane juice or granulated and they are to die for. Love them. Thanks for a great recipe!
