There’s never a moment when i don’t have extra bananas in my kitchen that seemingly are left to eternally rot. Therefore, i’m always finding creative ways to use them, even when they’re EXTREMELY brown. Besides, who doesn’t like a little chocolate with their banana?
1 stick butter (softened)
1½ cups powered sugar
3 ripe bananas
½ cup plain yogurt
1 cup raw cacao powder (unsweetened chocolate powder can be substituted)
2 cups self-rising flour
1 tsp salt
Mix butter and powdered sugar in large mixing bowl, set aside. In medium bowl add 2 bananas, yogurt and egg. Mix thoroughly, insuring that bananas are smashed.
Next, add banana mixture to butter mixture. Beat ingredients using a wire whisk. Combine raw cacao powder, flour and salt in separate bowl. Add flour mixture to banana mixture 1 cup at a time and stir after each addition. Be sure to scrap down sides of bowl.
Last, thinly slice remaining banana directly into mix and gently stir. Scoop mix evenly into lined 12 cup muffin or cupcake pan. Bake in 350°degree oven for 15-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle of muffin comes out clean.
