Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins

I'd like to thank the black bananas that were hanging in the kitchen,  and BandMan's ongoing love affair with chocolate for being the inspiration for these muffins that make happy in my mouth. I couldn't have done it with out you.

Now please excuse me, I have some banana bread muffins to cuddle.

1 3/4 c flour
1/4 c cocoa
1 c coconut sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp ground flax
6 tbsp warm water
1/2 c vegan butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1 lb overripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c chopped walnuts
3/4 c vegan chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flax and water; whisk it up until it's all frothy, and set aside.
  3. In a bigger bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: flour to salt.
  4. In yet another bowl, combine all the wet ingredients starting with your frothy flax water to the overripe bananas. 
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until smooth. Fold in the nuts and chips; and pour into the muffin tins. 
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes. 

P.s. You can totally use a loaf pan instead of muffin tins, and have a beautiful loaf of banana bread; just make sure to cook it way longer.
