coco-nana muffins

I made these, oh, a year and a half ago. And the file’s just been sitting around waiting for someone to choose them for Tuesdays with Dorie. Actually, it was the first recipe I ever made from Dorie Greenspan that was not specifically for TWD. I had told myself that I would only bake from the book with the group, but I realized that was stupid when I wanted to make muffins and happened to have all the ingredients for these.

Obviously they’re not fresh in my mind, plus I usually just eat one muffin per batch. I freeze the rest and Dave takes one to work everyday. I do remember liking these though, and indeed, my notes say “good; great texture; mostly chocolate, hint of banana.” Sounds perfect to me.

Steph has the recipe posted.

  1. These look so cute as muffins! I’m glad you remember enjoying these.

  2. Perfect coco-nana muffins.

  3. Well, they do look moist; so that’s perfection 🙂

  4. Wow, you’re way ahead of the game! Cute little muffins!

  5. These muffins are delightful compared to my big loaf. Next time, I want to make this as muffins. We like the loaf too.

  6. Awesome!!! My husband mentioned upon eating some of mine that I should make them into muffins next time 🙂 How long did they bake for?

  7. Gorgeous-looking muffins. I like the size. Small is definitley cuter. Will try them soon. Thanks!

    Carly – Uh…I made these a loooong time ago, but most muffins bake in about 18-20 minutes, so I’m guessing that’s a good range here too!

  9. Your muffins (and photos) look great! My hubby has been eating this for dessert each night. 🙂

  10. Mmm… muffins. Love that last photo with the muffin pan. So round and fluffly looking. Delicious!

  11. I made muffins too! These were good, but not among my favorite TWD recipes. I did enjoy an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast though 🙂

  12. Wow, I’m impressed that you’ve held them back for so long! I definitely wouldn’t remember what they tasted like (nor would I be organized enough to take notes down…).

  13. Your pictures are so nice a clean looking!

  14. Your pictures are great and I’m impressed that you didn’t post until now. Bake what you want, when you want! Most of all, enjoy it.

  15. nice little muffins! i love it when something i’ve made awhile back gets picked…gives me an opening to make something of my own choosing!

  16. These look good… I like chocolate and banana together (which is strange, because I don’t really love bananas all that much). I often make banana chocolate chip muffins, but next time maybe I’ll give this recipe a try. Good call on halving the recipe and making muffins, too.
