Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Well, winter does not seem to be kicking it around here.  Despite the fact that we are officially into spring, the ground is still covered with snow and the forecast predicts potentially more of it on Tuesday. Boo.  I have spring fever.  Next weekend will be much for a spring egg hunt!

Here is a healthy but tasty comfort food recipe for a quiet morning with a cup of coffee....if you get any of those mornings! And yes, it's chocolate!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Muffins
Wet Ingredients
~2/3 cup peanut butter
~1 mashed banana (you could add another if you need to get rid of some bananas!)
~1/2 cup honey
~2 tsp vanilla extract
~2/3 cup milk of your choice

Dry Ingredients
~2 cups white whole wheat flour
~1/4 cup coconut flour (you can use all white whole wheat flour if you do not have coconut flour)
~1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
~2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
~1/2 tsp baking soda
~1/2 tsp salt
~1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Mix all of the wet ingredients with a mixer.  Add dry ingredients, except chocolate chips, and mix thoroughly.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Spray a muffin tin and/or use muffin liners.  I used an ice cream scoop to evenly spoon out 12 muffins into the tin.  Place into the oven and reduce heat to 375 degrees.  Bake for 19-21 minutes or until a knife comes out of the muffins clean.  Let cool in the pan for at least 10-15 minutes before removing.  Enjoy with a cup of coffee or cold glass of milk!
My 3 year old said these were dee-licious! That never gets old.....
And congratulations to all those runners out there who had great races over the St. Paddy's Day weekend....I saw some amazing PR's on the race reports! I am still trucking along on the elliptical and spinning bike....11 weeks to go until baby #2 arrives!
Have a great week!
