Serves: 12
  • 3 bananas (ripe or over ripe)
  • 125 ml extra virgin oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 100 grams light brown sugar
  • 225 grams all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chunky peanut butter
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas.
  3. Beat in the oil and eggs, then add the brown sugar and mix until well-blended.
  4. In another large bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda.
  5. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and stir until just combined.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Using a large cookie scoop, portion out the batter filling the cups about ⅓, then place a scoop of peanut butter (about a teaspoon or two) into the center of each muffin. Cover with more batter until each cup is ¾ full.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops spring back when lightly pressed.
  9. Leave in pan for 5 minutes, then turn onto wire racks to cool completely.
