Chocolate Banana Muffins

Banana muffins are a mainstay at our house, sometimes filled with chocolate chips, mixed berries, strawberries or just "plain." But this new to us variety will become a regular part of the rotation.

Not only do these muffins have chocolate, they have coffee, too! And a nice combination of butter, buttermilk and yogurt, so they are super moist and extra delicious. I gave some of these to my brother's family and I heard that my niece hoarded hers. (So of course I made her more!)

These muffins go equally well with coffee or a tall glass of milk. They're great for breakfast on the go, or for a quiet morning at home. Or for an afternoon snack! Just try them - I know you'll love them.

Chocolate Banana Muffins
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 bananas, very ripe and mashed
1 - 6 oz. container banana or vanilla yogurt
2 eggs
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup coffee
1 Tbsp. vanilla 

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, cinnamon and salt.

Place the butter in another bowl, and microwave at 50%  power til melted. Let cool slightly, then add the sugar and mix well. Add in the yogurt, eggs, bananas, buttermilk, vanilla and coffee and stir until combined. 

Gradually add in the flour mixture, whisking well until all the flour is incorporated.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake at 350 for 20-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Makes 18 muffins.
