BLUEBERRY, CHERRY, AND CHOCOLATE MUFFINS

These moist and tasty muffins provide sweetness, but not too much, along with fiber and nutrients from the three different types of fruit, plus some dark chocolate, of course. I use a mallet to both crush and chop the chocolate inside a sealed sandwich bag, using less pressure when going for the chopped, larger chunks of chocolate. ​

Ingredients
  

  • 2 overripe bananas mashed with a fork
  • ½ cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar or a sugar substitute equivalent
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • 1 ½ ounces dark chocolate crushed
  • ½ ounce dark chocolate chopped
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray 9 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the bananas, yogurt, and egg.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flours, sweetener, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Add the blueberry and cherries and toss well.
  • Add the yogurt mixture and stir just until the ingredients are well-blended.
  • Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, fill each prepared muffin cup about ⅔ full.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the tops a lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean from the center of a muffin. Cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes.
  • Remove and finish cooling on a wire rack.

Notes

Makes 9 muffins.
