Mocha Cinnamon Muffins - Wheat Flour

These are REALLY good...I took these to a brunch along with double chocolate mint muffins (yet to be published)...I came home with an empty container !!!!  ALWAYS a good sign that people liked what you brought !!!!!

1 and 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (I used Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Flour )
1/4 cup Sucanat   (or brown sugar) (I use Barry Farm for Sucanat)
1/3 cup Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 Tbsp instant coffee
1 and 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 tsp Coffee Extract  (I use OliveNation)
2 large very ripe bananas, mashed

Mix applesauce,  vanilla, coffee extract and mashed bananas in one bowl. 

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.    

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin PanCasabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The OXO Large Scoop  is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan.  It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!
