  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (or whole wheat)
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • ¼ cup special dark cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup canola or avocado oil
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 medium bananas) (mash to almost a puree, you don't want many lumps of banana)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips (can use less, if you want to)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners.
  • Combine the flour, ground flax seed, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, & ¼ cup chocolate chips in a medium sized bowl.
  • In a separate smaller bowl, whisk oil, mashed banana, sugar, egg, & milk together.
  • Gradually pour wet ingredients into dry gently stirring. (You do not want to over mix or it will be dry). Stir until all ingredients are just combined.
  • Pour ~1/4 cup batter into each muffin liner. Top with remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips on top of muffins. Bake at 350°F for ~15 minutes or until a few crumbs come out when doing a toothpick test.
  • Note: Do not overbake or they will be dry.


You can put all ½ cup chocolate chips on the top of the muffin, in the batter, or cut back on the chocolate chips and use less to just sprinkle a few on top.
