Preheat oven to 350F

Bowl 1:

  • 2 sm. very ripe bananas
  • 3/4 c. lowfat plain yogurt
  • 2 lg. eggs

Bowl 2:

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. cocoa powder, sifted

  • 1 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Combine both bowls until just mixed
  2. Fill 12 muffin cups
  3. Bake about 35 min

I found these rose fairly well and had a light texture, but they stuck to the muffin papers I used (probably because there wasn’t oil in the recipe). Next time I would try foils, or lightly greasing the muffin tins. I might also use a little bit of vanilla.

Breakfast

Apple Muffins
Preheat oven to 400F

Grate 1 1/2 c. apples with their juice (I guesstimated and used two Fuji apples)
Stir in 3/4 c. sugar (I used demerara) and 2 large eggs, let sit for 10 minutes

In a separate bowl combine:
1 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda (I didn’t have any, but the muffins still turned out fine)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves (next time I’d add more of these spices, or possibly ginger/nutmeg/etc)

Melt 5 tbsp. butter and add to apple mixture, then fold in the flour mixture, do not overmix!
Distribute batter in muffin tin (line with paper)
Bake for 14-16 minutes (mine were just done at 15 min)
