Wanted to share a quick recipe for Chocolate Banana Muffins. If you have some bananas you need to use, this is a GREAT recipe.
If you dont have applesauce on hand, go ahead and use vegetable oil. Of course the applesauce IS healthier :)

Chocolate Banana Muffins

3 large bananas
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup white rice flour (or mixture of other GF flours)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp xanthan gum
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I like Giradelli’s)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . Line a muffin tin with baking cups, and set it aside. In a large bowl mash the bananas with a fork or potato masher.
Mix in sugar, egg and applesauce. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder and xanthan gum, to the banana mixture.
Mix lightly with a rubber spatula to combine. Fold in chocolate chips. The batter should be just moistened but still a little clumpy.
Pour, or scoop batter into cups, and bake for 20 minutes.

WARNING: these are very chocolatey and gooey! If you dont like that much chocolate, omit the chocolate chips. Enjoy!
