feeling domestic?

i sure am lately. i made chocolate banana muffins this morning
and last night i whipped up a pretty tasty chocolate mousse, which
you can find here at fly through our window. for some reason
i have a sweet tooth lately and i just can't get enough sweets.
it's probably because i just spent my whole life savings (not literally)
on fixing my teeth this last week. who knows, but i have been
enjoying these yummy treats. here's what you need if you
want to satisfy your sweet tooth...

i got this cookbook through dole.
i think it cost about a buck and they have some pretty good recipes.
the idea being that your kid eats at least five fruits and veggies a day.
i followed the raisin buddy banana muffins recipe,
but i changed a couple of things.

the recipe calls for raisins but i didn't have any so i reduced
the amount of cocoa powder to 3 tablespoons and added
1/2 cup chocolate chips instead. yes, i know that chocolate
is not a subsitute for a dried fruit, but i told you i have a sweet tooth, okay?
and there you have it, tasty, yummy, satisfying banana muffins

which makes this little miss one happy girl!

the recipe:
2 very ripe, medium bananas, peeled
1 egg beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa powder (reduce to 3 if you are following my version)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup dole raisins (or chocolate chips if you are following my version)

preheat oven to 350 degrees. spray muffin pan with cooking spray or line with liners. mash or blend bananas until smooth. scrape bananas into a mixing bowl and combine with egg and oil. in another mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt and baking powder. add banana mixture, and stir until moistened. stir in raisins (chocolate chips). spoon 1/3 cup of batter into 10-12 prepared muffin pan cups. bake for 20-25 minutes. enjoy!
