Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Sorry I have not been posting in a while. I have been in a cooking rut. Although I have been doing some baking…it is more fun to bake goodies than to plan menus and cook a meal.

Last week I have loads of bananas that needed to be used but cannot get my kids to eat traditional banana bread even if I put in chocolate chips for them. So this time I added cocoa so it resembled a chocolate muffin and they gobbled them up and had no idea. In fact one of my daughters said she could see a chunk of applesauce. (I use applesauce in place of oil in most of my baking). I shook my head and laughed since this time I used oil and well it was  a chunk of banana. Goes to show you she thought it was just a chocolate muffin.
