Chocolate craving...

These days I have been loving me some chocolate.. i mean seriously! (I am sipping on my midnight snack Oreo cookie shake as i write this)  A little interesting when you have a little one around who loves to jump on your lap and share with you.. I believe all things in moderation. while I don't encourage "junk food" for kids I also try not to deprive my little one (or myself for that matter) of sweets here and there. When I bake I like to add some kind of nutritional benefit like white whole wheat flour, flax seed, wheat germ, veggies, fresh fruits, and more. That way I don't feel so bad when me and my little one have chocolate for breakfast and we do.. often =) From Chocolate pancakes, chocolate zucchini bread, and our favorite these days "chocy muffins" as my daughter calls them and I'm sharing the recipe with you today! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! The best part is you can bake em and freeze them! n then reheat whenever the chocolate urge hits you! =)
our ingredients(pretend u see canola oil i forgot to include oops)

have your little one mash the bananas =)
and lick the masher of course =)

once you have it all mixed 2gether add the beautiful chocolate
fill up mini muffin tins
watch the magic happen
