Double Chocolate Chip Muffins Revisited

I was excited to try to make a better muffin recipe and I think this round was good.


Mix together
1 banana
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
Add and mix
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Add and mix
6 oz plain Greek yogurt
Add and mix until just combined

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Add and mix in
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Divide into 24 mini muffin pan
1/4 cup chocolate chips to sprinkle on top

Bake 12 minutes in a 400 degree oven.

These muffins were more moist with the banana and had a slight banana flavor.  The chocolate still was the dominate flavor.  I still wonder about the baking soda and baking powder and wonder if I could leave one out.  Reducing the egg and oil seemed to be just fine.  In addition I reduced the flour by a bit.

The consensus is that these muffins are an improved version!  

5/2013 - Made some substitutions and tastes great!  1/4 cup coconut oil (olive oil), Ener-G egg replacer (egg), 1/2 cup wheat flour + 1 cup white flour (1 1/2 cup flour)  Nutritional Info is for coconut oil, wheat/white flour mixture and an egg.
