  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 ½ cups mashed ripe banana (about 3)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup oil I like extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract use the real stuff, not the imitation stuff
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Confectioners sugar (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 400º F. Line a standard 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.
  • Sift the first 4 ingredients into a medium bowl. Add the wheat germ and unsweetened chocolate. Combine the mashed bananas, milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla in a large bowl; whisk to blend. Add the dry ingredients along with the chocolate chips; mix well. Fill prepared muffin cups ¾ full with prepared batter. Bake until a tester comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Dust with confectioners sugar, if desired.
