Mocha Muffin Recipe

Deliciously moist and rich, these mocha muffins are a family favorite.

Like most regular American recipes, the original recipe called for a ridiculous amount of sugar. Thanks to the bananas, you can cut the sugar by more than half and still have a perfectly sweetened muffin! So that’s what I do.

Looking for a delicious mocha muffin  that's made with (mostly) whole food ingredients? Try these moist mocha muffins.

The “healthified” version started with my mom. Sadly I don’t know the source of the original recipe!
