Directions

Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your muffin tin with non stick spray. Mix your dry ingredients:  WW flour, protein powder, cocoa powder, sweetener, baking soda and baking powder together in a bowl. In another bowl, mix your egg, greek yogurt, vanilla extract, chocolate extract and 88g of mashed banana together. Combine your wet and dry ingredients. Take half of your batter and divide it evenly among 6 muffin tins. Lay 1 slice of banana on top of the batter. Divide the remaining half of your batter between the 6 tins, making sure to cover the banana slice. Bake for 18 minutes.

These muffins came out so chocolatey!! They are wonderful alongside some vanilla greek yogurt!!

    • That's great to hear Candice! I am so happy you enjoyed them! The whole point of creating recipes like these is so that you feel like you're eating something unhealthy when you're really not! Let me know if you try any other recipes and thanks for sharing your feedback! :)

    These are so good! I just made them! I used truvia as a sweetener, muscletech casein triple chocolate protein, and strawberry greek yogurt. They baked a little bit different than a typical muffin, but still turned out amazing! I did bake them a little longer than 18 minutes though
