Choconana Muffins

Anyone craving for muffins? Here is a simple recipe for a batch of delicious muffins. I have used bananas here but I am sure you can use other fruits like apples, pineapples, raisins or just nuts and dried fruits.
Ingredients (6 medium muffins)
Whole wheat flour – ½ + cups
Baking powder – ½ tsp
Unsweetened cocoa powder – 1 ½ tbsps
Salt – ½ tsp
Over ripe banana – 1  
Sugar – 3-4 tbsps
Oil – ¼ cup
Milk – ¼ cup
Vanilla extract – ¼ tsp
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease the muffin tin.
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mash the bananas (or puree them if you don't want to bite into small pieces), add sugar, oil, milk and vanilla. Mix well. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine well.
Pour into the muffin tray and bake for about 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
 Note - Adding fresh fruit to the muffins reduces its shelf life so unless you plan to gobble up all the muffins in one day, store them in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
