I make these for my daughter for breakfast. The recipe makes a big batch, I freeze half and keep the other half in the fridge- great, healthy breakfast.
3 small or 2 large bananas, mashed
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup honey
½ cup turbinado sugar
2 ½ cups white whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup dark chocolate, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 standard size muffin tins.
In an electric mixer, add the butter, honey and sugar. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes and add the eggs one at a time, beating in between. Add the mashed bananas, pumpkin puree and vanilla extract. Beat for a minute. On the side, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin spice and cinnamon to a medium bowl. Whisk well and gradually add to the egg mixture while beating slowly. Beat for a minute or two. Add the dark chocolate and mix with a spatula and transfer to the muffin tins using a ¼ cup scoop. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or till a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle. Let cool and serve.
