Chocolate Banana Muffins

After we polished off a batch of refrigerator muffins.....I was looking for a new muffin recipe to try.  I had the Nigella Lawson cookbook 'Kitchen' out on loan from the library and was interested by her recipe for Chocolate Banana Muffins.  I gave it a go and was fairly pleased with the result.  It's just a little more interesting than banana bread......maybe......anyway.....you really can't go wrong with chocolate, now can you.  
Chocolate Banana Muffins
makes 12
3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 1/2 cups flour
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 400F and line a muffin pan with paper liners.  Mash bananas and mix in oil, sugar, and eggs.  Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda into a small bowl.  Gently mix the dry ingredients into the wet until combined.  Spoon into 12 prepared muffin cups.  Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until tops spring back when lightly touched.  Cool slightly and move to wire rack to finish cooling.

Those look very good! If you are interested in something similar, but for dessert, you can try a Banana Nut Brownie recipe from the book "Fat Witch Brownies" by Patricia Helding. Super -d- duper too.
