Chocolate Banana Bran Muffins

These tasty treats are pleasantly healthy- I like to smear on a bit of homemade peanut butter for an excellent breakfast on the go!
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups bran cereal
  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or regular)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbs unsweetened applesauce (or oil)
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  1. In medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. In large mixing bowl, mix together cereal and milk. Let stand for 5 minutes or until cereal is softened.
  3. Stir in eggs and applesauce; beat well. Stir in bananas. Add flour mixture, stirring only until combined. (Mixture will be thick.)
  4. Spoon batter into 12 large muffin tins, coated with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes or until browned and firm to the touch.

  • Chocolate chips make a lovely addition
  • Beware of using paper liners, using applesauce instead of oil tends to make the muffin stickier
  • I use my food processor- toss in the bananas, then eggs, and then moistened bran cereal and applesauce.  Then mix that mush with all the dry ingredients.

Yields 12 muffins
