Strawberry Banana Fudge Muffins
Adapted from Our Best Bites
Makes 12-16 Muffins
3 large, extra ripe bananas
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup plain yogurt or applesauce
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup mini or regular chocolate chips (milk or semisweet)
3/4 cup chopped strawberries
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a muffin tin (or 2) with 12-16 liners.
2. Smash bananas in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, egg, yogurt/applesauce and vanilla and combine until well mixed. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Pour dry ingredients into wet and mix together until fully combined, but don’t overmix.
3. Set aside about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the chocolate chips and add the rest to the batter. Mix in the chopped strawberries and *divide the batter between the cups. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top.
4. Bake for 15 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out with moist crumbs attached. Don’t overbake. Let cook on rack for 5 minutes and then remove muffins from pan to cooling rack until just warm.
*A muffin-sized scoop works perfectly to equally divide the batter. I have this one and love it.
