I’ve planned to publish this recipe for a long looong time now. These Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are our family favorite, AND I’m making them regularly for my family and me. Actually, I’m doing these every time we (khmm.. well mostly me ) got this unbearably insane craving for chocolate during weekdays. These muffins are easy to prepare and can be made in only 20 minutes which makes them PERFECT for quickly fixing that sweet tooth and chocolate craving without the unnecessary calories. Yay for that!

These muffins are true good-mood food… you know, the food that elevates the mood. They are made of bitter cocoa and dark chocolate, which are known to lift up the mood and reduce stress. My husband loves these muffins so much that if I just mention how I might probably make Double Chocolate Banana Muffins for dessert later, he’s eyes starts to glow, and he starts to burst with joy. He’s really easy to please sometimes.  He always says that he feels immediately better when: a) he wakes up next to me (awwww soo cute) and b) when he knows that we have Double Chocolate Banana Muffins for dessert.

In fact, we are both a bit over obsessed with choco-banana combination. We do like to snag a Chocolate Banana Cake too. Those who have tried heavenly choco-banana combo know how addicted that combo can be.

We love Chocolate Banana Muffins because they are sweet, but don’t have a lot of added sugars. Actually, these muffins are refined sugar-free. PLUS they are DOUBLE chocolate!!! PLUS so moist, irresistibly soft and banana flavored! YUM!  We like to eat these muffins freshly made, straight from the oven and still warm while the dark chocolate bits inside the muffins are still melted. Trust me, this is like ULTIMATIVE pleasure!

These muffins may look loaded with calories, BUT looks can be deceiving. These Chocolate Banana Muffins are made with all HEALTHY ingredients, very nutritious and moderate in calories. For making these muffins, I used whole wheat flour rich in high-quality fibers, super healthy coconut oil and raw cocoa. I also used Ceylon cinnamon known for its healthy benefits. Muffins are naturally sweetened with ripe banana, so they don’t contain lots of added sugars. I also added bits of dark chocolate chunks into the mixture so that each muffin bite holds a piece of true chocolate fantasy.

Still in doubt about this chocolate splendor?! … Let’s once again sum up why I love these muffins and why you’ll love it too. 

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are …

  • made with all healthy wholesome ingredients,
  • moist and fragrant, full of warm aromatic flavors,
  • full of high-quality dietary fibers that promote good digestion and weight loss,
  • easy to prepare and can be made in just 20 minutes,
  • needs only a few simple ingredients,
  • refined sugar-free,
  • low-calorie,
  • enriched with healing spice – Ceylon cinnamon,
  • contain raw cocoa – powerful antioxidant that elevates good mood, reduces stress and depression,
  • perfect quick breakfast or kids school snack.

Convinced to try?  …. Well, there’s ONE MORE thing! To make these muffins even MORE awesome, I filled them with (homemade) peanut butter and drizzled with melted dark chocolate and peanut butter. Try to say no to this babies now!!!  If you’re allergic to peanut butter OR you simply don’t like it (… how’s that even possible… ), just omit it. Muffins are just as good with or without peanut butter inside.

  13. Two things: First, your husband is awesome for saying he likes to wake up with you beside him. Adorable! Second, you’re killing me with these muffins. Let me explain – since my daughter decided that she wanted to live with me and John rather than her mom, our home has been completely void of life without peanut butter. She’s not allergic, but the smell of taste or thought of peanut butter can make her cry. Weird, right!? So, in two weeks from now, she’s on March break and spending some time with her aunt; what will I be doing, you ask? Yep, eating these Double Chocolate Banana Cupcakes all damn day!

  16. I love when you post sweets, because I always know I can get my chocolate fix and not feel guilty about it! We do a lot of baking with just bananas as the “sweetener” in sugars and I love that my toddler enjoys them without all the excess added sugar!

  17. These are killer chocolate banana muffins my kids will gaga over this. I am going it make for them. Never go wrong with banana chocolate you made is excellent with that piping. yum.

  18. Um did you say peanut butter in the middle? Yea I’ll take 5 please! They look amazing and you really can’t go wrong with lots of chocolate and peanut butter!

  19. Those muffins look awesome and love all the guilt free ingredients that have gone into it. Muffins are our favorite snack when on the go and this one one is a healthy one as well. Chocolate and bananas pair so well!
