Chocolate Banana Muffins

Assalamualaikum Dear Friends!! :)

 Banana a favorite fruit of almost everyone, but once they get over ripe nobody care to even touch. Even I used to throw away all the over-ripe bananas. But now Alhumdulillaah no more ignorance towards this nutritious fruit. Whenever I see them changing color I stuff them in my freezer. And what a wonderful way to use them, make a banana bread with loads of walnuts or make healthy muffins. Chocolate team well with banana in these lovely muffins that are made even more delicious with the addition of vanilla.





INGREDIENTS:
All purpose flour 1cup
Sugar 1/3 cup
Cocoa powder 1/3 cup
Baking soda 1 tsp
Baking powder 1 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Egg 1
Banana mashed 3/4 cup
Plain yoghurt 1/3 cup
Butter melted 4 tbsp.
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Chocolate chips 1/4 cup (optional)



METHOD:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a standard size muffin tin with 12 cups.
2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the banana puree, yogurt (or sour cream), egg, and vanilla. Beat on low until combined. Add the melted/cooled butter, mix on low for 10 seconds.
4. With mixing speed on low, slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Do not over mix. Remove bowl from stand and fold in chocolate chips (if desired).
5. Using a cookie scoop, fill each muffin tin ¾ of the way full. Place in oven and bake for 18-24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
6. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
