Your regular ol’ banana muffin gets a makeover with whole-wheat flour and three kinds of chocolate. These Triple Chocolate Banana Muffins will turn your so-so morning into a great one!
After a long week, I always look forward to a little baking therapy on the weekend. Most of the time I don’t want anything too complicated or time-consuming, because the point is to rest up after a busy week, right? I want to save plenty of time for relaxing with a good book, hanging out at the pool with the kids, or going for a long walk.
Muffins are the perfect baking project when you crave something sweet and want it in your belly quickly. Especially these Triple Chocolate Banana Muffins. They will satisfy your sweet tooth AND your chocolate craving. They’re made with whole-wheat flour so you don’t have to feel too guilty about eating them, even for breakfast. I used white whole-wheat for it’s milder wheat flavor and you’d never know these muffins contain whole grains if I didn’t tell you.
To make these muffins triple chocolate, I used cocoa powder, melted chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The banana and chocolate flavors meld together perfectly, and your kitchen will smell amazing as these muffins bake. Breakfast, snack, or even dessert… Triple Chocolate Banana Muffins are delicious any time of day!
