Instructions: Moist and decadent dark chocolate banana muffins
Mix sifted flour, baking soda, dark cocoa powder and salt.
In the second bowl mash very ripe bananas with a fork.
Add egg, sugar, oil, vanilla extract and stir.
Combine ingredients of two bowls and stir. Add 60 grams of chopped dark chocolate and mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Put the paper liners in the muffin pan and fill them up to 3/4 in height with prepared batter. Divide the rest of chopped chocolate between your muffins.
Bake in the preheated static oven at 175 °C for 20 to 25 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
Remove the pan from the oven, gently take them out of the pan and let them cool down completely before serving.

*For this recipe I was positively surprised by the excellent quality of cupcake liners made by Decora. Not only they have kept their original shape but they have not changed their color nor they have become greasy during the baking time.
