Chocolate Cake Breakfast Muffins

Chocolate Cake Breakfast Muffins are a great way to start your day!

These treats are great for any time! They provide several Dr Greger check marks: 2 "other fruits", flax, and whole grains! Plus, they are nut-free, so they are great for school lunches and snacks!

You really can use this recipe as a healthy chocolate cake! It's very tasty and sweet!

Chocolate Cake Breakfast Muffins
10 dates, pitted
4 bananas (extra ripe = extra sweet)
1/4 c flaxseed, ground (so you absorb the nutrition, also I sometimes add another 1/4 c for more nutrition)
1 c warm water
2 c whole wheat flour (pastry flour makes them extra fluffy!)
1 Tbsp baking powder (Trader Joe's sells aluminum-free)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 c cocoa, unsweetened (you could add a bit more for even more chocolaty treats)

Combine first 4 ingredients in blender. Combine last 4 ingredients in large bowl. Then add wet to dry and mix until well combined, careful not to over mix.

Pour batter into 9x9" pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40 min, or until cooked through. I love my silicone bakeware. 

You might notice, this is basically my Smooth and Sweet Banana Bread recipe plus 1/2 cup cocoa! So versatile! How do you mix it up?!

Here is another variation on proportions (without bananas) to make more of a "cookie" and it's still very nutritious!

Can oat flour be used in place of whole wheat?

I would guess yes, but I will try it and let you know!

Hey these LOOK good and TASTE wonderful! I subbed ground-up oats for the wheat flour (allergic to wheat), boosted the ground flaxssed, and used cacao instead of cocoa. They are probably a bit less "light" than with pastry flour but AWESOME to have a healthy baked good FOR BREAKFAST! Plus I always keep overripe bananas in the freezer for smoothies and yonanas "nice cream" so was ready for this recipe, too.
