Cocoa-banana Bran Muffins

Total Time

Got this one from Kellogg's about 8 years ago. If you prefer, you can use all mashed banana rather than one mashed and one sliced. I've also tried adding 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to make this a real treat

these turned out ok. i liked the sliced banana in them. my only complaint is that the cooking time seems way off for me. i baked for 30 min. and the bottom half of the muffins are still a bit undercooked. thanks for posting.

MMM...tasty and healthy both. I made these with Splenda, and I diced rather than sliced the 2nd banana. Figured these to be 2.5 WW points, so a great treat! I shared them with a WW budy.
