Chocolate Mud Muffins


Chocolate Mud Muffins

3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup carob powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 ripe mashed bananas
2 large eggs beaten

mix wet - mix dry - mix together
- sprinkle with chocolate chips to garnish -


Preheat Oven to 400F
*the high temperature pre-baking allows the muffins to rise higher*

Reduce Heat and Bake @ 380F

Vegan Option: replace eggs with flax "eggs" by
 mixing 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds in 6 Tbsp water.

Gluten-Free Option: replace wheat flour

yogurt-soygurt instead of 3 Tbsp.

Kelsey these look GOOD -- they remind me of a dessert my mom would make for us as kids: chocolate pudding with crushed oreos mixed in and gummy worms on top -- its called dirt dessert or something like that

Omigosh those look absolutely delightful! I would love to make them, but I would need to buy multiple ingredients and I'm moving into my sorority into a week! Gahhhhh. I'm so sad :(

These are looking mighty yummy right about now. Liked you cooking instructions: mix wet, mix dry, mix together. That's really all you need to say, teehee. Loved that you added bananas. I'd imagine these to be quite moist and delicious :-P

These look amazing! I didn't know that pre-heating makes them rise higher, good to know :)

You and your muffins ;-) I wonder how these would be with white chocolate chips....

brittac said... [reply]

alex (spoonful of sugar free) said... [reply]

My jaw literally dropped when I saw these! Gosh, Kelsey! You are the muffin queen!

Crystal said... [reply]

Note to self: buy whole grain flour, carob powder, and a muffin pan.

Chelsea said... [reply]

Oh my gosh these look perfect! What's the difference between cocoa and carob powder? Do you think I can just use cocoa powder instead of carob powder?

Lindsay and James Cotter said... [reply]

Those look like heaven on a plate. I bet they are delicous with some GREEN GINGER TEA, yea!!

healthyexposures said... [reply]

okay...i'm not even a chocolate fiend and i was practically salivating at the title and first picture combined. they look great! that and the combo of choco and banana is never bad, so this is probably a chocolate muffin i'd enjoy ;)

Kat said... [reply]

I showed these to my hubby and his eyes got really big. I guess that means he wants me to make them ;)

crispandverdant said... [reply]

Oh my goodness - these deserve some sort of award - like "most mouth-watering food photo ever"

Marina said... [reply]

Please send some of those muffins my way! :)

cleaneatingchelsey said... [reply]

Holy cow - these look awesome!!! I would run and make these immediately, but we still have some frozen scuffins and half of an apple cobbler left to eat!

Thank you for the gluten free option - I have a feeling you thought of me! :)

We Are Not Martha said... [reply]

Oh wow, I NEED to make these. I think they're exactly what I'll make with my need-to-do-something-with bananas! Yay! Thanks :)

If only I could reach through the screen and grab one............. 8-)

Is this your own recipe?

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) said... [reply]

I would love to dive in to a mudpile. I mean mud muffin!!!!! :)

Monet said... [reply]

Can I please come over to your house for a cup of tea and one of these delicious muffins? You did such a great job with your photographs too...I wanted to jump right in!

Madeline - Greens and Jeans said... [reply]

To say these look incredible would be SUCH an understatement! You are the muffin queen!

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish said... [reply]

Mmm I've never had a mud muffin, but I looove mud pie, so I'm certain that these would tickle my tastebuds! Thanks for including the GF modifications! xoxo

sophia said... [reply]

Goodness!! Can I just sink my teeth into one right now?!

mariposai said... [reply]

All I can say is....wow.

balancejoyanddelicias said... [reply]

these look scrumptious!!! Can I have one???? :)

tatiannalives said... [reply]

Wow! It's so cool to see you baking muffins as opposed to just buying them (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with the beautiful GF ones that you usually have!). I rarely make my own chocolate stuff because they never seem to turn out quite right.. but these look so rich and hearty :P

<3 Tat

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said... [reply]

Ummmmm WOW. Those look AMAZING!

Amanda said... [reply]

These looks absolutely amazing girl :) My birthday is in just a few days and I am thinking these might have to be made to celebrate!! Hehe!

Tehsina said... [reply]

OH EM GEE.
Those muffins look DELICIOUS! I'll definitely have to try them out soon.

Thank you for the muffin-rising baking tip as well! I had no idea pre-heating the oven to a high temperature before baking made that much of a difference!

Heather (Heather's Dish) said... [reply]

girl, it isn't even fair that you posted these! they look way to good to NOT make them :)

Nicole, RD said... [reply]

Those look UH-mazing!

Jessie said... [reply]

Man, Kelsey, the muffins you showcase on your blog always have me DROOLING!! Chocolate, oh my goodness! I will definitely be making these and sprinking and much chocolate as I can possibly fit on top. You are 100% the muffin queen!

TheHealthyapron said... [reply]

Thank you for NOT using choc. whey protein powder! I will be saving this one for sure!

elk said... [reply]

Oh! THOSE are the sort o' muffins that are just asking for their tops to be picked off. And they have bananas in them. I think I love you, is that too forward of me??
I might just have to hide three bananas somewhere where they can ripen in peace without being eaten...
Did I mention that I think I love you??

Biz said... [reply]

Um, those are definitely insulin worthy!

Hope you have a great weekend Kelsey!

Kayla said... [reply]

You're seriously killing me. These look SOOOO good!

highonhealthy said... [reply]

Mmmm.. mud muffins. Those look amazing even if they do look like mud. ;)

Emmie said... [reply]

they look so decadent for such few ingredients! impressive!

Joanne said... [reply]

Did you ever eat those dirt dessert cups as a kid? I used to LOVE those. I bet they are even better like this, in muffin form. GLORIOUS.

Krista said... [reply]

Geez, Kelsey! Those look fantastic! And I like that the recipe makes a nice big batch. I never see the point in heating the oven for 6 muffins... ;)

Emily said... [reply]

These muffins look so good! I love love love anything chocolatey, and I'm sure these would not disappoint. Thanks for adding a vegan option, too!

Jessica@tastyandtrim said... [reply]

YUM those muffins look heavenly! Do you think they would work with all cocoa powder instead of carob? I need to try these out :)

Jen said... [reply]

oh my word!!! Those look absolutely wonderful!!!!! One more recipe to try out SOON!!!!

Lauren @ Health on the Run said... [reply]

Kelsey -- these look heavenly!! My mouth is watering! :) This is definitely a recipe I need to come back to asap!

Stacey said... [reply]

Holly molly lady those look so good.

Kelsey @ Clean Teen Kelsey said... [reply]

Oh Kelsey, that is a cruel thing to post when I have no bananas or soy yogurt! I'm salivating and there is nothing I can do about it! Hehe. :P

Rebekah (clarity in creation.) said... [reply]

i don't even know why you BUY muffins when you are so talented!

i'm totally transforming this into a "breakfast bread" for my mom this week!
