Nigella Lawson Chocolate Banana Muffins
This recipe has 7 ingredients. It takes approximately 25 minutes to prep and bake and makes 12 servings. With only 7 ingredients I had no problems finding any of them at my local grocery store. Instead of regular cocoa powder I used dark cocoa, I feel that the flavor is stronger and more flavorful. I ended up with chunks of banana when the muffins were fully cooked even though my bananas were very ripe. I think next time I would put the bananas in the food processor or blender in order to fully liquify the bananas. Additionally as suggested by some of the other comments on the recipe page I would add some cinnamon if you use regular coca powder. Make sure to watch the muffins in the oven, mine were done at exactly 15 minutes. I followed the remainder of the recipe as stated.
I love combining chocolate and bananas in baking recipes. This recipe is very easy to make and a great way to use over-ripe bananas. My youngest son thoroughly enjoyed these muffins and ate two of them as soon as they came out of the oven. I like that they have the nutrition of the bananas and the dark cocoa provides a great taste. The next time I make this recipe I think I would add chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips. It would provide an every stronger chocolate flavor and be delicious.
