Over a year ago, I made a lot of Banana recipes as there was always some leftover. After a long while I got few of them languishing in freezer and the fact that I haven’t baked in some months, that I decided to re-create one of my old recipes into muffins.

You can make them into Vanilla Muffins by replacing cocoa powder with flour. I topped these with some chopped walnuts. You can sprinkle chocolate chips, or serve them plain for breakfast.

The recipe gives a lot of scope to experiment. I earlier made it as marble quickbread in whole wheat. I shared some with my neighbours and they all loved it. When kids enjoy my baking, I am most pleased, I guess.

      Hi Sarah, The recipe uses only cocoa powder. You can replace 1/2 cup of cocoa powder with 1/2 cup of all purpose flour without any effect to the recipe. Hope this helps.
