Sometimes a chocolate craving hits you so hard you drop everything to go make the most chocolately (not a word, I know) muffins you can think of while still trying to keep them healthy. So that was honestly the inspiration behind this recipe.. a really severe chocolate craving. These are basically banana chocolate chip muffins but with cocoa powder for extra chocolately goodness. I’m just going to keep pretending like that’s a real word.
Are you tired of muffins yet? I should probably lay off on all of the muffin recipes but it’s just so hard because they’re so fun (and easy) to make! And I’ll just be honest and admit that I just really love muffins. I also love making them with ripe bananas because you don’t really need to add much sweetener since the bananas give off so much of the sweetness. I thought it would taste weird to combine banana and blueberries in a muffin but it actually is a great combination. My favorite go-to muffin is banana chocolate chip but in an effort to be healthier I reached for the fruit instead. The toasted walnuts really add great flavor as well. So overall just a really yummy muffin!
You need to make these muffins. Right now. That is if you happen to have four brown bananas on hand… it’s funny because once I realize we have bananas that are going to go bad soon I use it as an excuse to make some kind of banana bread or muffins. Typically I make a healthier version of chocolate chip banana bread (very similar to this recipe) but in an effort to keep it a little cleaner I omitted the chocolate chips and added some oats and peanut butter instead. And they turned out pretty awesome.
