Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, room temperature
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips, more for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners and lightly spray them with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together bananas, maple syrup, vanilla extract, egg, coconut oil, and greek yogurt. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt.
  • Carefully pour in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until just incorporated and no flour is left at the bottom.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a large cookie scoop (or ice cream scoop), fill the muffin cups 3/4 full and add additional chocolate chips on top, if desired. Repeat until all the batter is used up. You may get more than a dozen, that's okay.
  • Bake for 5 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit then turn down the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and finish baking for 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool in the muffin pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Notes

Baking at a high temperature initially gives your muffins a "lift" and that glorious bakeshop muffin top. It essentially gives the baking powder and ingredients a boost of heat in the beginning.
