  • ½ cup unbleached, all-purpose flour*
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 medium banana
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chunks


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with liners.

  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flours, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda and powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, mash banana. Stir in coconut oil and maple syrup until combined. Pour wet mixture into dry and stir until a smooth batter forms. Just before the last few streaks of flour are stirred in, fold in the chocolate chunks.

  3. Using a cookie scoop, fill cupcake liners ¾ full. Bake for 25 min. or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for 5 min. in the liners, then transfer to a wire cooling rack. Eat when warm or store in an airtight container at room temp.
