Some exercise, some shop, I cook.

Stress I said, some exercise and shop. I on the other hand cook. I love to cook and bake. All the worries of my day go away in the form of casseroles, muffins, cookies, salads, pancakes, and any other meal you can imagine. Today, I was not stressed. I simply wanted to try a new recipe. Since Keeley eats almost anything (her favorite foods are any beans and fruit) I feel comfortable trying all different kinds of recipes. Today's exploration in the kitchen was Chocolate banana muffins. And let me tell you, they are DELICIOUS! Even my husband, who is not a sweets or banana kind of guy, loved them. Here is the recipe for your enjoyment...
3 1/2 ripe bananas mashed
1/4 cup applesauce
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter softened
1/3 cup sugar
2 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325. Line muffin tins or grease muffin tin. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in small bowl, set aside. Cream butter and sugar. Then add egg whites, bananas, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until well combined. Add flour mixture to wet mixture and blend on low until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and bake for 30 minutes.

Super easy, tasty, and these little gems won't bust your diet. Enjoy :)
