Chocolate, banana, and buttermilk muffins are a lightly sweet and slightly hearty way to start the day! It’s like healthy chocolate cake for breakfast.
- 1 cup white flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup semisweet cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 eggs , lightly whisked
- 2 large bananas , mashed (about 1 cup)
Preheat the oven to 350*F. Combine the white and whole wheat flours, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
Combine the brown and white sugar, buttermilk, eggs, and bananas and stir until mostly smooth.
Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet in stages, making sure not to overmix the batter. Place paper liners in a muffin tin, and distribute the batter evenly. Each muffin cup should be about 3/4 of the way full.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving.
