Cocoa Banana Muffins

I thought I had posted this recipe before, but I can't find it on here, so I guess I didn't. This is the most fixed muffin's at our house. The main reason is because I can't stand to eat ripe bananas and hate even worse to waste food so this is how I use old bananas up! The kids' prefer these muffins to banana bread.

-1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp salt
-2 Tbls cocoa powder
-3 bananas, mashed
-3/4 cup white sugar
-1 egg, lightly beaten
-1/4 cup butter, melted
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-1/4 to 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
-1 Tbls flax seed (optional)
-sprinkle cinnamon on top before baking

*Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
* In large bowl, mix dry ingredients. In another bowl beat bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter.
*Stir in the banana mixture into the flour mixture, just till moistened.
*Bake in pre-heated oven for 16-18 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing.

NOTE: You may have extra batter depending on how many bananas you actually throw in there, I usually do mini muffins also. For some reason anything miniature gets eaten a lot faster around here!
