Ingredients

  • 4 tsp espresso powder
  • 1/2 cup milk I used skim but any will work
  • 6 bananas ripened
  • 1 cup Imperial sugar
  • 1/2 cup Imperial light brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter unsalted and melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg ground
  • 1/4 cup Rodelle cocoa sifted
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips I used mini. Any are fine

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Line cupcake pan with liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine espresso powder and milk.  Set aside
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine bananas, sugars, butter, and espresso mixture.  Mix until blended.  Add eggs one at a time, mix to blend after each addition.
  • Indo a large bowl add flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cocoa.  Whisk to combine.  With the mixer on low, spoon dry ingredients into the wet batter.  Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin tins. I used an ice cream scoop which filled them to about 3/4 full.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
