  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine the bananas, applesauce, eggs, and sugar with a hand mixer until bananas are blended in well.
  • Mix in the cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Measure the oats into a blender or food processor and pulse a few times until the oats become finer pieces.
  • Add the blended oats and flour to the mix and blend until everything is thoroughly mixed. Then stir in the chocolate chips (I like to reserve about 1/2 cup to sprinkle on the top of each muffin just before baking).
  • Use a 1/4 up measuring cup and measure it (slightly heaping) into regular size muffin tins that have been lined with cooking spray or baking liners. This makes 2 dozen muffins.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, they are ready when a toothpick in the center comes out without batter.
  • Cool for 5 to 10 minutes before removing from baking tin, then cool completely on the counter or a cooling rack. They can be refrigerated or frozen to last longer.
