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
~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
~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!
