Double Chocolate Mint Muffins - Wheat Flour

These are REALLY good...they have a nice mint flavor - not too strong.  The chocolate chips are a nice addition.  They have a rich chocolate flavor.  I took these to a brunch and everyone thought they were GREAT....there were none to bring home !!!  Always a good sign !!!

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
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (I broke up a chocolate bar)
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp Peppermint Extract (I use Nielsen-Massey)
2 large very ripe bananas, mashed  (if your bananas are smaller, you will probably need to increase the liquid by 2-4 Tbsp)

Mix applesauce, milk, vanilla, peppermint, 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 !!!

My prayer is that light will flood your hearts and that you will understand the hope that was given to you when God chose you.  Then you will discover the glorious blessings that will be yours together with all of God's people.
Ephesians 1:18 (CEV)
