Chocolate, Banana and Buttermilk Muffins

Print Recipe
Serves: 12-15 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup semisweet cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 2 large bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 350*F. Combine the white and whole wheat flours, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.

2

Combine the brown and white sugar, buttermilk, eggs, and bananas and stir until mostly smooth.

3

Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet in stages, making sure not to overmix the batter. Place paper liners in a muffin tin, and distribute the batter evenly. Each muffin cup should be about 3/4 of the way full.

4

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving.

    These are awesome Ruthy! I am the same way — all the expired stuff goes in the baked goods. Plus bananas. Bonus points for chocolate!!! Also buttermilk makes everything way way WAY better.

    Aww you’ll wake up not pregnant soon! Multiple times a night. πŸ˜› These are such great muffins! I love how they’re also kind of clean-out-the-fridge treats.

    I’m working on a post about how to use up leftover buttermilk, and what do I find? Gorgeous Chocolate Banana Cupcakes, errr…I mean, muffins! Mind if I include the link in my post? Also, languishing is one of my all time favorite words. Good usage.

    I completely agree with you about muffins! And this is the kind of muffin that makes me bitterly resent the fact that I hate bananas so much. πŸ™ Yum, all that cocoa powder… buttermilk…
