  • 2 ripe bananas
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup applesauce no sugar added
  • cup water
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips divided


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees.
  • Line a muffin tin or spray lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Mash bananas in a medium size bowl.
  • Stir in the sugars, applesauce, water, and vinegar until thoroughly combined.
  • Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined.
