I found this recipe on and modified it. They are so moist and delish! I add 1 cup of raisins, can also use nuts or chocolate chips.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix melted margarine, sugar and bananas together.
  2. Sift flour, baking soda and salt (if using) together.
  3. Add to banana mixture.
  4. Mix until well blended.
  5. Add cocoa, continue to mix.
  6. If mixture seems dry (due to whole wheat flour), add some of the water.

  9. OAMC: let cool and freeze.

Simple & Quick. Rose very nicely for eggless quickbread & was moist & lightly sweet. Didn't taste chocolate-y despite tripling the cocoa, but had delicious banana taste, which is what I was going for anyway ;) My husband said they weren't muffins, they tasted like a bread, but my boys *loved* them- we had a bunch of ripe bananas and made these two mornings in a row. I'll be trying this again soon with mini chocolate chips instead of cocoa powder- just waiting for the bananas to ripen :) Thanks for sharing!

We don't have any special diet needs in our house, we just didn't have any eggs or milk left and I wanted some muffins. These were really good and yummy. I would make again. Easy too.

I made a Gluten free version. My subs were as follows: 1/3 oil instead of margarine 2 c of Bob's Red Mill Flour instead of regular 4 bananas instead of 3 (mine were small) 3TBSP cocoa I added: 3tsp of Guar gum (for gluten free flour) Dark Chocolate chips I modified: I used mini muffin tins rather than traditional; baking time was reduced to 15 mins. My oven isn't very accurate, so I suspect my temp was 335-345. These were cake-like and surprisingly delicious (GF sometimes not so tasty). Thanks for the springboard!
