Banana Chocolate Meal-in-a-Muffin

Rated as 3.07 out of 5 Stars
1

"I searched everywhere for a hearty breakfast muffin and had to invent my own in order to make it tasty and whole-wheat without loads of sugar or exotic ingredients. 100% whole-wheat. Almost no fat and very little sugar. But chocolatey and delicious. This is a very dense muffin that literally could replace a meal (if nuts are added)."

I like the healthy basics for this recipe so I tried it. I used coconut oil instead of olive oil, and replaced oatmeal for 1/3 of the flour. I put unsweetened coconut, chocolate chips, and walnu...

Very heavy dry and bland. Maybe try white flour instead of whole wheat and maybe add some butter or milk

I made them but found having no butter they seemed dry, although having put chocolate chips & walnuts in them there wasn't much flavour at all. They were cooked in 20 minutes so be careful, I th...
