Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bran Muffins

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 1 cup All Bran cereal
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium banana, mashed (1/3 cup)
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

  1. PREHEAT oven to 375 F.  Lightly spray your 12 muffin muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. MIX milk, cereal, and oats in a large bowl.  Let stand for two minutes.
  4. ADD egg, banana, peanut butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Beat well until fully combined.
  5. ADD flour mixture to large bowl, mixing well.  
  6. STIR in chocolate chips until combined.
  7. SPOON the batter into the muffin pan so each muffin cup is evenly filled.
  8. BAKE for 16-18 minutes, checking at 16 minutes with the "toothpick test".  The "toothpick test" - stick a toothpick in the middle of a muffin and see if it comes out clean.  If it does, the muffins are done!  If not, let them bake a little longer.
  9. LET stand for 5 minutes, then remove from the muffin pan.  Enjoy!
