chocolate banana muffins •

I’m tired, I’m lazy...so here’s the recipe.

Okara Chocolate Banana Muffins •

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together in a large mixing bowl:

1 cup wet okara (this is referring to the okara straight from your machine)
1/4 cup vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 small bananas (peeled, of course)

Sift together in a large mixing bowl:

1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unbleached white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cocoa

1 cup chocolate chips

Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. DO NOT OVER MIX. Fold in one cup of chocolate chips. Line your muffin tins with paper liners. Fill the liners 2/3 of the way with batter. Bake muffins 20 to 25 minutes. Makes approximately 18 muffins.

Thank you, Lady P. I wish that I could say I have been busy doing incredibly exciting activities, but it would be a blatant lie, lol. I hope to get back into the blog a little more, but we will see. I have given myself permission not to stress about it. ;)

Where have you been? I havent seen you on twitter. I'm so sorry I didnt invite you, but thought it would have been far out being in Wisconsin.

Hey Courtney-

I was just joking with you. I am only an hour and a half from Chicago. Definitely “doable”.

Mmm, looks really good! I don't usually make soymilk, but I do make a lot of rice and almond milk, so also end up with pulp. I wonder if either of those would work in this recipe?

toontz said...

Hi Dragonfly Pie-
I have mixed the almond milk residue in with okara (I make almond milk sometimes, too), but I am not sure if you could switch it out entirely. I use okara in place of eggs in a lot of my baked goods. It seems to make a great egg replacer.
