Raise your hand if you agree that chocolate is totally okay for breakfast? Good! We can be friends then. Today I’m sharing chocolate…for breakfast. And you’re totally going to love me for this.

I’m not going wild with the chocolate, well maybe a little…BUT, these double chocolate muffins are made with bananas and applesauce. No butter, no oil, not even an egg.  I kind of love them.

You’ll notice that only eleven of the dozen muffin made it to the cooling rack. My taste buds could not resist the allure of those chocolate chips tucked into the top, all melty and perfect. I have to say, that little muffin went down way too easy.

Not overly sweet but totally packed with rich chocolate flavor, these muffins beg to be devoured with a cold glass of milk on standby.

Light and airy and yet somehow totally decadent. I guess chocolate for breakfast can be nothing if not decadent.

I vow to treat myself to this kind of breakfast more often. Chocolates makes me happy and the earlier in the day I can have it, the better.

This recipe makes twelve muffins and they keep amazingly well. I had a few tucked away for a treat and three days later they were still perfectly moist (thanks to those bananas and applesauce) and utterly delicious!

  2. These are being made this week! Can you tell me about how many cups your bananas equalled?

  3. Nothing better than applesauce muffins! The texture is always so good. And I am a chocolate for breakfast person. That’s happening right now, as we speak. Now I have to make these bad boys for later this week!

  4. I’m amazed that these are so healthy when they don’t look like it (I swear that’s a compliment)! And chocolate is A-OK for breakfast in my book — I can’t wait to try these!

  5. I’m all for having chocolate for breakfast! I actually have about 1/2 of applesauce left in my container and have been wondering what to do with it! These muffins are happening!

    Hi :) Your muffins looks soooo delicious! I’m from Denmark and i was wondering what you mean by applesauce? Thanks for sharing your recipes!

  8. Natalie says:

    These were delicious! I used raw sugar and mini chocolate chips since that is what I had in the pantry. Very moist and chocolatey :)!

  9. I only have Mott’s original applesauce on hand. Could I use this and decrease the amount of sugar and by how much? I have to make these NOW!!! :)

  10. Felicia says:

    I made these yesterday and they did not have as much chocolate flavor as I had hoped. Does it matter that I used cacao instead of cocoa?

  11. What is the vinegar needed for? Can it be substituted or left out?

  12. My three-year-old son and I made these muffins today.
    They were so yummy.
    Easy to make and healthy too. Thank you.

  13. Delicious! I also love that it doesn’t use up my precious butter and eggs! The only tweak I make is I add about a teaspoon of vanilla. But I don’t know if that’s like honey and would make these technically not vegan.
